The campus community came together at the University of Missouri–St. Louis last week to celebrate Homecoming 2018 while showcasing all its creativity, generosity, spirit and fun.

UMSL Daily is reliving it all with a snapshot of the pictures captured by UMSL photographer August Jennewein throughout the week’s festivities.
