Homecoming is a special tradition at Roberts Wesleyan College, offering a time for alumni, students, parents, and friends to come together, reconnect, and enjoy Roberts’ spirit of community.
This year's Homecoming has even more to celebrate as we inaugurate our new President Dr. Deana L. Porterfield on Friday, September 26th at 11:00 a.m. in Pearce Memorial Church Sanctuary.
Five year reunions take place throughout the weekend. Reunion years (Classes ending in ‘4’ and ‘9’) have designated areas throughout the Cultural Life Center on Saturday during the Taste of Roberts event.
