During the four-day Mizzou Blood Drive, MU students set a new Mizzou Homecoming record by collecting 6,237 units of blood. Traditional Homecoming activities for this weekend include Campus Decorations, a Mizzou Spirit Rally with Marching Mizzou and MU Spirit Squads, a concert featuring national performing artist “Youngblood Hawke”, and the 102nd anniversary Homecoming Parade.
