Inside is your complete schedule for events and activities happening this week in Moscow.

Hey Vandal Fans!

UI Homecoming 2005 will be held September 25 – October 1, 2005, and the 2005 Homecoming Committee has been hard at work to make this Homecoming the best ever. This years Homecoming theme, "Vandalmania," will unite the University, community, and UI alumni for a week full of fun-filled events with the culmination of the week being the Idaho / Utah State Homecoming Football Game Saturday at the ASUI Kibbie Dome.

Below you'll find a complete schedule of events. Feel free to visit the Homecoming website at for complete details on events and the most up-to-date information on Homecoming 2005. On the website, you can also see a list of other alumni planning to come back for Homecoming. Don't forget to add your name if you're planning on coming too!

The second annual Vandalfest will be held Friday night after the Homecoming Bonfire at the Alehouse at 226 W 6th St. from 7pm to 10:30pm. This year will be bigger than last year, with drink specials, live music, and non-stop fun!

Over the past year, the athletics department has also been hard at work scheduling 4 home athletic events throughout Homecoming Week. The woman's volleyball team has matches Thursday and Saturday night against the Nevada Wolf Pack and Utah State Aggies, respectively. Saturday afternoon, the Vandal football team will face off with the Utah State Aggies at the Kibbie Dome. The Vandal woman's soccer team will face off Sunday, October 2, against the Eastern Washington Eagles.

Be sure to make plans on taking the trip to Moscow for Homecoming to meet up with old friends and cheer on the Vandals to victory in all their athletic events.
