This week in the Office of Student Involvement at the University of Missouri-St. Louis:

  • Homecoming is next week. The Homecoming celebration at UMSL is a tradition that began alongside the founding of the university. On February 1, 1963, UMSL’s first Homecoming Queen was crowned at the campus’ first Homecoming Dance. What began as two events—a basketball game and a dance—has grown and changed with the university. Each year, the university invites alumni and friends to “come home” to celebrate the tradition of Homecoming. We invite you to join the UMSL Homecoming experience and spend some time with us at Homecoming activities in February. A schedule of events and more details about the week can be found at
  • The marquee event of Homecoming is the Dinner & Dance, happening February 24 from 5:30 to 11 p.m. at the Hilton Ballpark Village Hotel in downtown St. Louis. Tickets for the Homecoming Dinner & Dance are available now: $30 for an individual, $55 for a couple, or $275 for a table of 10. Buy your tickets in person at the OSI office or online at Visit for more information.
