Team Competitions and Events
Window Decorating Contest
UNLV’s Window Decorating Contest is a Homecoming tradition that gives students, faculty and staff the chance to show off their artistic skills and represent their Rebel Pride to earn Homecoming points. Participating groups will be assigned a window to decorate on the first floor of the student union.
The Rebel Race will be a campus wide scavenger hunt that will test competitors’ mental and physical abilities. This is a race where teams will compete in a trivia based race much like the one seen on TV, “The Amazing Race.” It will be a time based event with lots of stops along the way. Trivia will be based on TV shows and will get progressively harder with each pit stop.
Let's all burst into song and dance and have a glee-tastic carnival. We are bringing all the fun back again for the 2nd time! Each team will have the opportunity to build a 10ft by 10ft carnival game that will be displayed throughout the event.
Teams will participate in a variety of events at the SRWC to earn points to their overall totals. The event is modeled after the Olympics and is intended for student organizations and residence hall buildings.
NPHC Yard Show
NPHC first participated in Homecoming in 2010, being recognized as the outstanding new participant at the 2010 Rebel Variety Show for their portrayal of The Wiz. We are excited to have NPHC, the governing council for the traditionally African-American Fraternities and Sororities.
Rebel Variety Show
The Rebel Variety Show gives individual students and those participating in the team competition the opportunity to audition and showcase their talents to win prizes. Teams registered in the homecoming competition compete for the winner of the Rebel Variety Show. Prizes are given for best Greek organization performance, best student organization performance, most spirited performance, best individual performance, and most creative performance.
The homecoming parade is one of the oldest homecoming traditions at UNLV. Every year, students build a float related to the homecoming theme and showcase their floats at the parade. The parade is a community partnership that takes place at Town Square.
