MONROE, La. (KNOE 8 News) - ULM's Homecoming Week has officially kicked off and with it comes the university's 85th anniversary. A series of events are lined up for students, faculty, and alumni but you don't have to be a Warhawk to get in on the fun.

"It's 'Homecoming and if you're in Monroe and if you are in Monroe, we want ULM to be your home," says Roxanne Smith, assistant director of alumni.

Smith says ULM's Homecoming is a community celebration, celebrating an institution that has gone through many changes since 1931.

"It's gone through 5 name changes and this year we have people from class of '66 coming and people who came here in the 1940's," says Smith.

A chance for students and Alumni to get to know one another, and a chance for each of them to show some school spirit.
