The University of Alabama’s Homecoming Week will begin on Sunday, Oct. 17. This year’s theme is “Together We Rise,” a campaign selected by the Student Government Association. 

Homecoming Director Sarah Bittner said she is excited for freshmen and sophomores, who haven’t experienced a “normal” homecoming yet, to see the student body come together. 

“I’m honestly excited to see UA students come out because we’ve heard a lot of buzz about homecoming this year,” Bittner said. 

Homecoming Week will begin with the 33rd annual Roll Tide Run on Sunday, Oct. 17, and end with the crowning of the homecoming queen at halftime of the Tennessee game on Saturday, Oct. 23.
