Homecoming

2016 MWSU Homecoming

Homecoming is funded by the Student Government Association. The chairs are appointed by the SGA President and approved by the Executive Board and Senate. Homecoming has always been a part of the Missouri Western tradition. In 2001, it was decided to elect homecoming kings. Mr. Stan Pearson was the first homecoming king in the history at MWSU.

2016 Homecoming Theme is "Griffons Bring Home the GOLD"
