Homecoming and Family Weekend 2016

September 16 – 18

Welcome to Homecoming and Family Weekend, September 16 – 18, a celebration for families, alums and the campus community.

Events are now being scheduled for the weekend and will include classes with faculty, athletic contests and a student research symposium. President Mark D. Gearan will welcome you at his State of the Colleges presentation on Saturday morning, followed by the President's Forum. We hope you will arrive on campus early enough on Friday to attend Quad-a-Palooza for an evening barbecue, activities for children, and the student talent show. And the traditional Fall Nationals homemade cart races on Saturday should not to be missed!

Online registration for Homecoming and Family Weekend will begin in August. During the weekend, please come to Headquarters in the Scandling Campus Center starting at 11 a.m. on Friday, September 16, where we can assist you with information about the weekend, meal tickets for Quad-a-Palooza and Tailgating, see a copy of the schedule and get your nametag(s) for event access.
