What is OctoberWest?

OctoberWest is the Embry-Riddle Prescott campus’ Homecoming week. It celebrates the uniqueness of the campus and includes events for students, alumni, faculty, and staff. Signature events include the Industry/Career Expo, Alumni Eagle Night, Friday Fair, and multiple spirit events throughout the week.

2021 Theme: Riddle Around the World

This year’s homecoming theme is “Riddle Around the World” which embodies the 2021 OctoberWest Committee's vision for the homecoming experience. We hope to encourage the Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University family to celebrate our community’s rich diversity. In a time where human connection and togetherness have been challenged, we are extremely excited to foster relationships with past, present, and future students through honoring the legacy that is Embry-Riddle. For this reason, the homecoming theme calls for a celebration emphasizing our institution of familial tradition, student diversity, close connections, and our home. We look forward to a week-long homecoming celebration that will embody the true spirit and value of our Embry-Riddle community.
