Homecoming- Owl Prowl
Every fall the FAU community joins in celebrating Homecoming Week. Owl Prowl events take place on all campuses and include kick-off festivities at FAU Stadium, a parade, a concert and comedy show headlined by nationally known performers, the ExtravaCANza canned food sculpture contest, a 5K fun run and, of course, the Homecoming football game, with the crowning of the King and Queen during halftime. The big Homecoming event on the Jupiter campus is CarnivOWL, while the Davie and Fort Lauderdale campuses celebrate with FAU Spirit Days.
The annual fall bonfire, sponsored by the Student Alumni Association, is quite literally the hottest tradition at FAU. Flames, smoke, music and excitement fill the air as thousands of FAU fans cheer the start of a new football season and witness the fiery demise of a giant effigy of the opposing team’s mascot. Go Owls!
