It's 2012 Homecoming week at the University of Montana, and this year's theme is 'We Are Montana',  a festive week for alumni, friends, students and community members.

Countless alumni return to campus to take part in the traditional Homecoming festivities, including the Hello Walk, Distinguished Alumni Award ceremony, Yell Night Pep Rally, All-Alumni Social and Dance, Homecoming Parade, Homecoming TV Tailgate Party and the Homecoming football game!

This year's Homecoming theme, "We Are Montana," embodies the united spirit of
UM students, alumni, supporters, faculty and staff - a spirit that spreads throughout
all of Missoula and Montana. "We Are Montana" declares our pride in
UM's legacy of academic excellence and our tradition of athletic success. University of Montana on-campus events coordinator for the alumni association Jay Kettering has the line-up of activities for the homecoming week.
