  • SAU to (Mule) Ride the Storm during Homecoming Week Oct. 14-19

    Southern Arkansas University is proud to celebrate Homecoming the week of October 14-19, 2019, with a full week of exciting events and activities. This year’s celebration includes Dress Up Days, the Drive-In Movie, Spirit Logs and Street Painting Competition, Great SAU Campout, and the Homecoming Kick-Off Pep Rally. The week will culminate with the coronation of the Homecoming King & Queen and their court on October 19, right before the Mulerider football game.

    The theme for Homecoming 2019 is (Mule) Ride the Storm. Each day of Homecoming Week will represent a different SGA “Dress Up Day.” Monday will be PJ Day (no shear or see-through clothing, shirts to be worn at all times); Tuesday will be Costume Day; Wednesday will be Pink Out Day (dress to show your support for Breast Cancer Awareness); Thursday will be Hawaiian Day, and Friday will be Spirit Day – show your SAU spirit by dressing in Blue and Gold.

    It all starts at 6 p.m. Monday, October 14, with the Homecoming Kick-Off Pep Rally at the Greek Theatre. On Tuesday, SGA will celebrate with Burgers/Hot Dogs in the Mall beginning at 11 a.m. SAB’s Drive-In Movie night will begin in the Reynolds Center Parking lot at 8 p.m. Wednesday. “The Lion King” will be shown.
