Homecoming

Homecoming is a time when we welcome alumni back to campus and celebrate what it means to be an Eagle. There are opportunities to reconnect with friends and classmates, as well as current students, faculty and staff.


We're currently improving our beautiful campus, so check the map for updates. Several campus locations will be open throughout Homecoming Weekend! Be sure to explore the new and exciting sights and reminisce on your campus experience:
