The IUP Football team is gearing up for the big Homecoming game against Edinboro on Saturday, October 3, at 2:00 p.m. The IUP student body and Indiana community have an exciting opportunity to get involved in the team spirit as well.

IUP Spirit Week will take place Monday, September 28–Friday, October 2. Students and community members are invited to join us in the fun all week long. Below is the list of the themed Spirit Week Days. 

  • Monday, Sept. 28 – Pajama Day
  • Tuesday, Sept. 29 – Animal Print Day
  • Wednesday, Sept. 30 – Crazy Hat Day
  • Thursday, Oct. 1 – Twinsie Thursday (dress like a friend or a group of friends)
  • Friday, Oct. 2 – IUP Apparel Day

For IUP students that take part in the fun, there will be prizes given away daily. Students can participate each day by taking a selfie in their spirit week attire and uploading it to Twitter, with the hashtags #iuphomecoming15 and #iupfb. Gift cards and other prizes will be given away daily. 

The IUP community is encouraged to join in the fun as well. A contest will be held for the person in the community that shows the most IUP spirit, with the winner receiving a pair of Trace Adkins tickets that include a pair of meet and greet passes. Contestants are asked to take a picture of themselves (or their group) each day in their Spirit Week themed attire and enter it in the contest on the Kovalchick Complex Facebook page.

The contest will be active from September 28–October 2. The entries with the most combined votes will win. Entrants must submit a photo each day to be considered for the grand prize. Only one entry will be accepted per day per e-mail address.
