Homecoming Week, held each fall, provides an opportunity for School of Dentistry students, faculty, staff, and alumni to demonstrate their Blazer pride in various competitions. Dental students compete in building decoration, gurney derby races, parade float decoration, and overall Blazer pride. First year dental students create a banner to best demonstrate the chosen Homecoming theme for the year. This banner is displayed on the front of the School as students, faculty, and staff show their Blazer spirit to the judges. Students particularly enjoy and excel in the gurney competition. The week culminates with the Homecoming football game.
