List of EWU Homecoming Activities Supported by the ROTC Program

The fall colors are in full bloom all around the Eastern Washington University (EWU) campus which means it is homecoming week:

 The 2018 Homecoming & Parent and Family Weekend parade is 6 p.m., Friday, Oct. 26, in downtown Cheney. The EWU ROTC color guard and classic Jeep “Lil Eag’” with our historic towed packed howizter will lead the parade that starts the festivities of Eag-Nite (which also includes the bonfire-pep rally and street party).

The Color Guard and Lil Eag’ will stage at 4:30 p.m. in parking lot P-15 in front of Hargreaves Hall, next to the fence bordering the University President’s house.  Anyone wanting to get pictures with our Jeep and cannon are encouraged to show up during this staging period for photos.  We would love to see any alumni, friends, and family of the EWU ROTC program during this time.  The Color Guard with Lil Eag’ will lead the parade from P-15, followed by President Cullinan and her husband, EWU Alumni Association Board members, and our 50-year reunion guests, down C Street.  The remaining parade entrants will follow from their staging point in P-17.  The parade will then turn right onto 1st Street. The parade ends at the Surplus parking lot (H Street), where the bonfire-pep rally will be held.

Our historic World War II era pack howitzer fires after a touchdown during an EWU home football game earlier this year.

On Saturday, homecoming activities continue with the EWU football team playing the University of Idaho.  Prior to the 12:05 PM kickoff our EWU ROTC Color Guard will present our nation’s colors during the National Anthem.  During the game our Cannon Crew team will hopefully have a busy day firing our historic pack howitzer after many EWU touchdowns.

We look forward to seeing everyone this weekend.  Go Eags!
