UTM Homecoming schedule

The air is just a little cooler, the sun is setting a bit earlier, and the Skyhawk football team is nationally ranked- all just in time for Homecoming.

The Saturday matchup between UT Martin and Charleston Southern is the most obvious event that may be on your radar this week, but Homecoming Week is so much more. In fact, “UT Martin is All That!”

This year, UT Martin is throwing it back to the 90s to celebrate from Oct. 15 through Oct. 22. Special events for the week include several events to highlight the campus. With over 30 programs on the lineup, there's much to be seen.

The UT Martin Aviators Marching Band plays through the quad during the 2022 Homecoming Week. The football team’s Skyhawk Walk is just one of several Homecoming events lined up for students, alumni and family and friends.
