WIU Homecoming Kickoff Event: Paint the Paws Oct. 19


WIU students, alumni, faculty, staff and friends are invited to participate in Western Illinois University’s annual Homecoming tradition, Paint the Paws. This year Paint the Paws will be held Wednesday, Oct. 19 as the start to Homecoming week 2022, with the theme “90’s Blockbuster: Rocky Brings the Good Times Home.”

Paint the Paws is a time-honored tradition at WIU where the entire WIU community repaints more than 200 Leatherneck paws along University Drive and Western Avenue. Hosted by the WIU Alumni Association, this wonderful event signifies Homecoming is here, as members of the community paint paws leading alumni and friends “back home” to Western.

On Wednesday, Oct. 19, the WIU Alumni Association will host one Paint the Paws shift, starting at 1:30 p.m. Painters should check in at Western Hall by 1:15 p.m. Supplies will be provided.

Student groups, as well as campus faculty, staff, alumni and friends interested in participating should fill out the online form at bit.ly/PaintthePaws. Everyone is invited to participate.

For more information, email [email protected], or call (309) 298-1914. A complete list of Homecoming week activities held Oct. 15 – 22 may be found at bit.ly/ComeHometoWIU.
