Event Description:
The Razorback Booster Club and Student Alumni Association invites all university students to attend the annual Homecoming Pep Rally immediately following the Homecoming Parade to enjoy performances by the Razorback Spirit Squads and Razorback Band! The Homecoming Pep Rally will be at the Chi Omega Greek Theatre at 7:30 p.m. Friday, November 1, 2019.

During the Homecoming Pep Rally, we recognize former Homecoming Kings and Queens, Razorback Spirit Squad alumni, and Razorback Band alumni. Additionally, we will introduce the 2019 Homecoming Court and reveal your newest Homecoming Queen and King.

Homecoming is a long-standing tradition at the University of Arkansas. The first Homecoming parade was November 16, 1922 with the UA’s semi-centennial celebration. Starting at the Fayetteville square, the parade included floats that represented five sororities as well as the Carnall Hall dormitory. As preparation for the Homecoming festivities, the City of Fayetteville paved Dickson Street and added streetlights! The first Homecoming Queen, Aliece McHenry, was a member of Delta Delta Delta and made the opening kick-off during the Homecoming football game. C.T. Smith, captain of the football team, then presented her with a large floral arrangement. The Razorbacks were victorious over the SMU Mustangs with a 9 - 0 win. To celebrate they concluded the evening by gathering on the Fayetteville Square for a Homecoming Pep Rally.

The 2019 Homecoming Pep Rally is supported by the Student Activities Fee as a funded event by the Associated Student Government and is free to all currently-enrolled University of Arkansas, Fayetteville, students who pay the student activities fee.
