Cytennial: 100 years of Homecoming

Ashley Hunt

This year marks Iowa State’s 100th anniversary of Homecoming. In celebration of this monumental milestone, the university has adopted the name “Cytennial” Homecoming Celebration. 

Homecoming will “take Ames by storm” as Cyclone Football battles the Baylor Bears on Saturday.

Other highlights of this year’s Homecoming events include mini reunions for alumni to meet in the ISU Alumni Center, a pep rally sponsored by the University Book Store, a pancake feed, fireworks and mass campaniling traditions. 

Also included is “ExCYtement in the Streets.” After the pep rally and the Centennial Celebration, ISU students and alumni are encouraged to walk to the greek chapter houses to see the year’s Homecoming lawn displays. 

The Cyclone Central Tailgate will be held as usual prior to the kick off.

This year’s 100 year anniversary and Cytennial Celebration proves to be a continuation of Iowa State’s Homecoming activities, spirit and tradition that the university, students and alumni have grown to love.

Go state!
