Homecoming and Family Weekend 2017

Homecoming and Family Weekend 2017

September 15 - 17

Save-the-date for Homecoming and Family Weekend 2017! A fall tradition on the Hobart and William Smith Campus, HFW is a terrific time of celebration and engagement.

Each year, faculty members offer interesting classes on areas of study that are both timely and timeless, and students present findings from their impressive research projects. We have a special HWS Parents Fair and an open house at the Gearan Center for the Performing Arts. Families and alums gather to cheer on Statesman and Heron teams and students in the annual talent show. And, we offer tasty celebrations at Quad-a-Palooza on Friday and the Tailgate Party before the Hobart Football vs. Shanandoah College game on Saturday.

We have a special weekend of events planned and look forward updating the online schedule of events in mid-July.

Homecoming and Family Weekend is the perfect time to connect with family and friends, fellow alums, and reconnect with the Hobart and Williams Smith and Geneva communities. We look forward to welcoming you to campus as we celebrate "coming home."

Watch a recap of the 2016 Homecoming and Family Weekend below!
