Homecoming 2016

Homecoming is Oct. 3-8, 2016; and this year’s celebration is all about coming home.

Memories of driving through the rolling hills of Southeastern Ohio as a child caused Kelsey Bowman to stir with inspiration at the announcement of the 2016 Homecoming theme, “All Roads Lead Home.”

“[Watching] the OHIO brick buildings come into view after returning from a vacation, I always felt a sense of comfort and home,” said Bowman, Junior, interactive multimedia major. “Athens has always been, and always will be home to me.”

Over 2,200 votes from the OHIO community echoed Bowman’s sentiment, deciding this year’s theme via online survey and officially launching the annual Homecoming logo competition. Bowman’s design outdid two-dozen submissions, earning her bragging rights and a $100 prize.
