Homecoming is a time of celebration for everyone associated with The Capstone. As partners in our community, there are several ways that you can connect to the UA Homecoming Spirit and experience!

UA Students and Student Organizations

It is time to begin registering for events and activities. The Homecoming Executive Committee has worked hard to make the registering process simple and accessible to all students.

Identical to last year, the Homecoming Executive Committee offers two Homecoming divisions: the Crimson Division and the Tide Division.

The Crimson Division is open to any student organization or groups of student organizations at the University of Alabama.  Teams participate in up to 10 events. The Tide Division is a smaller version of the crimson division for stand along organizations or group affiliations to compete in 3-5 events.  Any UA Student is welcome to join the Tide Division, even if you are not a member of a student organization or if you prefer to compete with a specific group of friends in events.
