Welcome back to campus, Hornet alumni! At the heart of Homecoming Week is the celebration of our alumni as they return to campus with their families to reminisce and reconnect. If you haven't been back to campus for Homecoming, now is your chance! With perfect fall weather on tap and plenty of activities, you can't go wrong.
