Homecoming @Home Calendar:
Homecoming is about celebrating the Hornet family and reconnecting, even in a year where we've had to postpone football. So while we wish we could see you in person, we are excited to celebrate with you virtually this year and welcome you "back." Hornets everywhere are invited to get involved. Events are free to attend for the entire community!
(Note: All event times are PDT.)

Drop-off times will be Monday-Friday from 11 a.m.-1 p.m. and 4-6 p.m. on the north side entryway of the Harper Alumni Center. All who participate get a cut out Herky to proudly display in your space.
