Hello fellow Seahawks, it is your time to show off your school spirit this week for UNCW’s Homecoming. This week is packed with fun events for students, alumni and friends, leading up to the Women’s and Men’s basketball games this Friday and Saturday.
Are you on campus today? It’s our favorite day of the week… Teal Tuesday! If you are wearing your teal stop by Hawk’s Nest from 11-1pm for free t-shirts, giveaways, and make your own sign for Homecoming week. Later in the evening, show your support for your fellow students at Battle of the Bands in Warwick from 8-11pm. Five bands will be competing for a cash prize, judged by American Idol look-a-likes, including Bigg B from 97.3. You can help determine the winner by attending and voting for your favorite band!
Students are constantly using social media to find out information about upcoming events. Campus organizations have decided to use Instagram, Twitter, and Facebook to promote UNCW’s 2016 Homecoming Week. If you plan on attending any of the homecoming events, make sure to snap a picture and use the hashtag #UNCWHC16.

I liked how informative your post was! It was very well organized and I enjoyed the graphic! However, the inconsistency between the two should have been addressed in one way or another. I would recommend starting with the graphic and then stating “other events not listed above.” Another option might be creating your own graphic!
Thanks for the advice! We will be sure to take that into consideration.
For most schools Homecoming is a big deal… I mean, for my high school it was a huge deal. But I’m not sure why UNCW seems to have very little school spirit. Some blame it on the fact that we have no football team but I am not sure if that’s the truth. You would think that our campus would have a huge sense of community, but I think there is a different reason. I don’t think it’s the school that has a sense of community, better yet I think the city of Wilmington and Wrightsville Beach have an even broader sense of community. Although many people aren’t involved with the school, there are so many opportunities outside of school to get involved with. I love Wilmington, from the beach to downtown and everything in-between.. Maybe we just need to put more emphasis on school spirit and UNCW, but the love and sense of belonging is still in the air.
P.S. I hope that all the homecoming plans and events went well, go seahawks!
Thank you so much for your response! I have to agree that UNCW does need more school spirit especially around Homecoming week. Wilmington is a great place to live and we should have more school spirit around campus and the Wilmington area.
