This year, Mitakihara University is celebrating its 50th year of existence. Since the week of the university's founding is on a road date, the 50th edition of Homecoming Week has been moved up to September 18, 2060. This year's theme is "Madoka 50 - Colorful." Setsuna Ogiso, a native of Tokyo, Japan, is this year's Homecoming Chair. Ogiso is a senior music major and has ambitions of becoming a singer-songwriter following graduation from Madoka.

"It's an honor for me to preside over the 50th edition of this year's Homecoming Week at Mitakihara University on behalf of the entire MadokASI," said Ogiso this week at Magia Quad. "Homecoming is an important part of this university because it's full of brilliance and color. It's a festival dedicated to the history of one of the best places to learn and study and grow. So for this year, we are calling this year's Homecoming 'Colorful' and that's how we came up with the official theme name. This is a historic event that will be forever etched in the memory of those who support what we have done over the past five decades. It's been something special. This will always be an awesome school."

A number of events will take place leading up to the Homecoming Game against the Brigham Young Cougars on September 18, 2060 at 6:00 p.m. PT/9:00 p.m. ET. The game will be televised by City, TVA Sports, ESPN, NHK and BBC.
