USI students, faculty, staff, alumni and members of the community have the opportunity to show their school spirit by participating in several competitions over the course of Homecoming week.
- Spirit Competition
Each year, USI students create Spirit Teams and compete in the Homecoming Spirit Competition to be number one in school spirit. The Spirit Competition challenges student groups to show their spirit through participation in Homecoming events and two judged competitions.
- Craziest Fan Contest
Individuals and groups participate by dressing in red, white and blue. Wear the craziest outfit you can put together. Use hair color, makeup, glitter or unusual clothing.
- Office Decorating Contest
USI employees show their school spirit to students by decorating their department's office. Judging is based on the use of the Homecoming theme, red and blue and the use of USI's name and images.
