The UA Bobcats Senior honorary group, along with several others, lights “A” Mountain with flares on Tucson’s Sentinel Peak to represent the start of Homecoming Week. The “A” was originally lit before the first football game of the year, but the Bobcats reestablished the lighting as part of Homecoming Week in 2008. The 70 by 160 foot “A” has stood on Sentinel Peak since 1916, and is repainted each year by members of the incoming freshman class.
