Homecoming 2020

Saturday, October 10 – Saturday, October 17, 2020


In alignment with the University of Wyoming's (UW) efforts to further reduce transmission of the Coronavirus, the UW Alumni Association staff will be working remotely indefinitely until we receive further guidance from the university. While working remotely, we will have limited access to some resources, but will continue to respond to inquiries as promptly as possible. During this challenging period, we are committed and prepared to move our work forward effectively in service to our alumni, students and friends. Check the university's official coronavirus page for more information. Thank you and Go Pokes!












The game date may move to Friday, October 16th for a nationally televised broadcast.

Distinguished Alumni and Medallion Service Awards

The recognition of alumni who have distinguished themselves after graduation is a testament to the quality of the academic and student life at the University of Wyoming. The Distinguished Alumni and Medallion Service Awards have served as a long-standing Homecoming tradition recognizing outstanding UW alumni and individuals who have attained excellence in their careers or professions or have provided outstanding service through time, talent, affection, and dedication to the University of Wyoming and thus brought honor to UW. The first Distinguished Alumnus was Emory Land in 1953 and the first Medallion Service Award Recipient was Lloyd Eaton in 1968. To date, 201 and 40 individuals have been recognized as Distinguished Alumni and Medallion Service Award Recipients. A list of the recipients can be found on the UW Alumni Association website.
