“I’m excited to bring back our Nevada homecoming traditions this year especially after almost two years of living through a pandemic. I’ve loved seeing all of the student engagement we’ve been getting at ASUN events this year and can’t wait to see the turnout we get for homecoming,” ASUN’s Director of Event Programming, Tara Okui said.
“I’m hoping students take advantage of this opportunity to take a little break from their school work and have some fun, meet new people, and participate in Nevada traditions. It’s awesome to see the community come together for homecoming each year; it’s something we’ve all missed!”

All events are currently being advertised throughout @NevadaASUN’s social media platforms.
ASUN hopes to bring back the history and excitement of being on campus this semester through in person events such as those during Homecoming Week.
