The Hawkeye homecoming traditions we missed last year are back.

Mark your calendars for homecoming week, Oct. 11-16, which culminates with the Iowa football game against Purdue. With the theme of "Moving Traditions Forward," the festivities will also include the parade, concert, college reunions, homecoming court, and the dedication of the new pharmacy building.

We asked alumni and friends what places in Iowa City they look forward to revisiting this fall for homecoming following the pandemic-induced pause. Here are just a few of your responses:

Hamburg Inn for breakfast- Heather Alber Miers
Engineering Building 🧐🤓😁- William Wortman (06BSE)
The Vine, The Airliner, and the Cambus barn!- Ryan Ward (00BA)
Kinnick🏈, George’s🍺, downtown in general, and Finkbine ⛳🏌‍♂️- Spence Hall (74BA)
The library. Hopefully, there is still room to sit in the Roman classic literature book aisle. 📘📘📘📘- Patrick Keenan (78BBA)
Legendary Kinnick Stadium is a MUST!!! 🖤💛- Anthony Dean (94BS, 04MA)
