The 2018 Homecoming honorees celebrated during the reunion include Duane and Marci Shaw (Alumni of the Year), Joshua Meibos (Distinguished Young Alumnus) and Steve Mothersell (Grand Marshal).
No homecoming week would be complete without a Friday night Spirit dance or a chance to become a True Aggie under the blue A atop Old Main. The dance begins at 9 p.m. in the Taggart Student Center Ballroom. At midnight, students may gather with a partner on USU’s Quad to become a “True Aggie.”
More fun begins Saturday, Oct. 13, at 8:30 a.m. with a Homecoming 5k that begins at USU’s Welcome Center and ends at the Logan Tabernacle. At 10 a.m., join the crowds at the annual Homecoming parade on Logan’s Main Street. The parade begins at 100 South and ends at 700 North.
