Although Homecoming 2020: Redbirds in Flight could not be held this past fall in person, the University is moving forward with rescheduled virtual activities. Homecoming: Redbirds in Flight will now take place April 5-11 with virtual or socially distanced events. During the weekend, Redbird football will play North Dakota at Hancock Stadium. Check out how your RSO can register for our virtual parade, see what activities around campus are happening, and more.

More events will be planned within the coming months including a virtual pep rally. Visit to keep updated on all programs and activities. Be sure to show your Redbird spirit anytime you use Zoom with our new backgrounds!
