HOMECOMING HISTORY

Central Missouri’s first homecoming was a silver jubilee held Nov. 5, 1935, in honor of Eldo Hendricks. It featured a convocation during which 21 alumni reminisced about Hendricks’ 25 years of service plus a halftime presentation where the president and his wife received 25 silver dollars. Hendricks, known as a “dreamer of dreams,” voiced his earnest hope that homecoming would become an annual celebration rather than an occasional jubilee. 

The homecoming parade is truly one of the most popular traditions on campus and ranks among the top town/gown festivities the Central Missouri community offers. It’s always a colorful feast for the eyes, bringing the campus and local communities together to enjoy the Marching Mules, floats, equestrian units, dignitaries, area organizations, businesses and many regional high school bands.
