In less than two weeks, Titans will descend upon the IWU campus to celebrate Homecoming 2017! While counting down the days until we gather at our alma mater, let’s reminisce about our fondest IWU memories!

My favorite memories involve late nights spent on deadline in the Argus office with the dedicated newspaper staff, ensuring we covered the latest news on campus. Would anyone like to share their favorite IWU memories? Comment below.

If you are still finalizing your Homecoming itinerary, be sure to make a stop at the International RSO Fair featuring IWU’s multicultural registered student organizations, and enjoy activities and musical performances. Join in the fun on Saturday, Oct. 14, at the Hansen Student Center, Center Court, from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. A light lunch will be provided; please register either online or by phone by Oct. 8.

For more information, visit the Homecoming Facebook page or the International RSO Fair Facebook event.
