2019 CMU Homecoming

Homecoming is the one time each year that all Mavericks — students, alumni, staff, families and community — come together to celebrate being part of the Maverick family! The CMU Alumni Association is excited to invite you to this fun week full of events. Click here to see some photos of last years events!

October is Maverick Month!

We want to spread the Maverick spirit the whole month of October! The CMU Alumni Association will host two spirit contests so everyone can show their Maverick pride. Help us paint the town mavroon and white! The 2019 Homecoming theme is Road Trip, so get creative and show us what you've got!
