Tutor description

The first Homecoming was in 1914 at the University of Arizona. The football game is one of the major events of the weekend that usually kicks off the Homecoming weekend. One of the first homecoming games that happened at the U of A was when the Wildcats beat Pomona College over Thanksgiving in front of a crowd of 1,500 people. After this game, homecoming football games became a tradition. Following the first homecoming football game, students and athletes began participating in night games. Due to the immense popularity for night games, Homecoming football games soon became night games. After the football games students decided to have aparade which consisted of student built floats that were to be driven around. During the next 40 years homecoming was only cancelled once due to the war. The tradition of Homecoming king and queen came after World War II. The student body would elect its first Homecoming Queen.
