Homecoming 

A New Mexico State University tradition since 1926, Homecoming is a great opportunity for Aggies of all ages to reconnect with the university and their Aggie Pride.  

New Mexico State University will celebrate Homecoming 2017 with a week of events steeped in Aggie tradition beginning October 20 and culminating at the Homecoming game Saturday, October 28, against the Arkansas State Red Wolves.
