Homecoming 2018

We had a wonderful time with the many students, faculty, staff, alumni and community members that came out and joined us for Homecoming festivities this year. This was the first year that we hosted a campout on campus on Friday night. What a beautiful evening it turned out to be. One of our favorite times was during the campout on Friday when many of our students joined us for a cookout, campfire, line dancing, karaoke, and flag football under the stadium lights. Saturday morning brought the ribbon cutting of our new Athletic Building. We were pleased to have the family and friends of Lester Baum join in on the tour the Lester Baum Wrestling Room. Former Hall of Fame inductees were invited back to campus to be a part of the ceremony that followed the football game, as Chris Willis was inducted into Urbana's Hall of Fame. We hope you were able to join us, connect with former classmates, and take in the changes on campus. 

Our success is because of you!
