‘Canes of All Ages ‘Make Their Move’ and Celebrate Homecoming


With its spectacular fireworks, traditional boat-burning ceremony, parade of classic cars and “Make Your Move” board game-themed floats, Homecoming festivities presented by Student Affairs and the Homecoming Executive Committee Friday night was a nostalgic extravaganza for thousands of current students and alumni, including Grand Marshal and NFL Hall of Famer Cortez Kennedy, who returned to campus to celebrate the U. The revelry continued Saturday when the Hurricanes defeated Pittsburgh 51-28, with junior quarterback Brad Kaaya throwing four touchdown passes and scoring on a run in the offensive slugfest at Hard Rock Stadium.

Alumni Weekend and Homecoming Festivities Abound on Campus


A parade, the boat burning ceremony, fireworks, food trucks, and activities for children highlighted this year’s Alumni Weekend and Homecoming.

A parade, the boat burning ceremony, fireworks, food trucks, and activities for children highlighted this year’s Alumni Weekend and Homecoming.

With less than an hour to go before the parade got under way, Hannah Abel and some of her friends scurried about a trailer hitched to a pickup truck, adorning it with colorful decorations. They quickly fashioned it into a float themed after the 1960 Dr. Seuss children’s book One Fish Two Fish Red Fish Blue Fish. Able, along with throngs of other University of Miami students, was preparing for a grand parade on the Coral Gables campus. “This is one of the few times we all come together as a community, and the only time I feel closest to my friends,” she said.

On Friday, UM celebrated another Alumni Weekend and Homecoming—one like no other, as festivities abounded amid the excitement over the recent opening of the new Student Activities Center. Read the full story
