Missouri State alumni and fans "Let the Good Times Roar" at Homecoming 2014

Picturesque fall weather provided a perfect backdrop for the dozens of Homecoming activities held across Springfield Oct. 17-18. From the new BearFest Village (pictured above) to the inaugural "Bears on the Square" event held in downtown Springfield, it was truly a Homecoming to remember.

Thank you to all of the alumni and fans who joined us for this year's festivities and helped us celebrate all things maroon and white. Be sure to mark your calendars for next year's Homecoming, Oct. 16-17, 2015.

When Missouri State University’s new "front door" opens in fall 2015, it will be due in large part to a significant gift from Warren and Anne Davis and their family. In recognition of the gift, the building will be named the Davis-Harrington Welcome Center.

The welcome center is under construction at the corner of National Avenue and Bear Boulevard. This new facility will include a welcoming lobby, offices, conference room, a 100-seat auditorium and restrooms. Learn more.
