The University of Evansville Forever Purple: Homecoming and Family Weekend is planned for September 25-27. This year Homecoming Reunion Weekend and Family Weekend have been combined for one weekend with lots of activities. Special events are planned for parents and alumni, many of which will be open to the general public.

The main activity will be the Forever Purple Carnival on Saturday, September 26, from 2:00 to 6:00 p.m. on the East Terrace Lawn outside Ridgway University Center.  Those attending can enjoy food, games, and prizes.

A soccer doubleheader will fill the afternoon with the women facing Loyola at 3:00 p.m. and the men taking on Drake at 6:00 p.m.  Hall of Fame coaches Mick Lyon and Fred Schmalz, along with members of the 1985 and 1990 NCAA final four teams, will be recognized at the men’s match.

The grand finale of the evening will be the first ever fireworks show on campus held following the men’s soccer match (at approximately 8:15 p.m.).  UE students, alumni, parents, and all Aces fans are welcome.
