DURHAM - The University of New Hampshire is ready for some football! Students kicked off homecoming weekend with a parade through campus on Friday.
“A lot of school spirit, that’s the biggest thing,” said UNH junior Sheila Hackett.
Alumni from all over the country are flying in for the weekend.
“It’s awesome. I’m in a fraternity on campus, and all of our alumni come back,” said junior Tyler Miller.
Miller's friend, Garrett Finn graduated in 2013 and now lives in Miami.
“I flew in yesterday and honestly, just the first thing, the cold crisp air, it feels so nice,” Finn said.
The Wildcats are starting their season 2-2, after making it to the FCS semi-finals last year. They’re looking to pick up steam leading into another winning season, taking on Elon University at Cowell Stadium on Saturday.
Tickets are sold out to the general public, but the students we spoke with got their tickets early and are excited to celebrate in Wildcat country with friends who’ve graduated and moved on.
“This is kind of like home, a home away from home for everybody,” said Miller.
