Homecoming and Family Weekend
October 4-7, 2012

Updated September 21, 2012

In October 1914, President Charles A. Lory declared a special alumni reunion -- a football game pitting the present team against an alumni team.

In the years since, that event has blossomed into our annual Homecoming and Family Weekend, chock full of activities, class and organizational reunions, open houses, all-campus reunion festivities on the Oval and the ever-popular parade.

Come Home to Campus!

All alumni, families, friends and fans are invited to Homecoming & Family Weekend 2012.

Events are planned all week long, with the celebration kicking into high gear on Friday with Reunion on the Oval, the "Go for the Green and Gold!" parade, bonfire, lighting of the 'A' and Rams vs Cowgirls volleyball match. [more about Friday]

Saturday it's off to the races with the annual Homecoming 5K Race, or if you prefer a slower pace, the Campus Crawl -- an insider's look around campus. Tailgating at Hughes Stadium officially begins at 2 p.m., but for the hardcore fans gates open at 10 a.m. Kick off of the football game against Fresno State is 5 p.m., with festivities inside the stadium starting a half-hour earlier.
