Forever Teal


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.

This week UNCW’s campus organizations will be promoting Homecoming week with banners, posters, and flyers on Chancellor’s Walk. Follow the social media sites, @uncwilmington and @uncwace to keep up with Homecoming 2016 events.
