What does Hoco stand for?


Hoco is short for “Homecoming,” a tradition in schools where past students are invited back. It’s a term most commonly used by students during homecoming week, referring to a series of events like school spirit rallies, football games, and dances.

The term is used widely in high schools, colleges, and universities, especially in September or October when homecoming is usually celebrated. The aim is to build school spirit, but some students see it as a superficial event and use the term Hoco with a touch of irony.

It’s not unusual to see Hoco spelled in different ways, like “HoCo” or “HOCO.” Beyond its use in education, you might also see it used to refer to the 2017 superhero movie – Spider-Man: Homecoming.
