What is the Alumni Package?

This all-inclusive package is best for alumni planning to attend most or all of the events during Homecoming & Family Weekend, as it provides a package discount.

Can I register for individual events?

Alumni may register for events individually- we know that sometimes folks can only make it to one or two events! There are individual registration options for the volleyball game; Alumni Welcome Social; the Picnic on the Quad; both soccer games; and the Closeout Event.

Parents cannot sign up for individual events because of the nature of Family Weekend-specific programming.
