Each fall, we invite alumni from near and far to come back to sweet home Susquehanna for our annual Homecoming-Reunion Weekend.

About 1,000 alumni and their guests return to visit with old friends and professors and check out the latest changes to campus.

Although events change from year to year, visitors can always count on a home football game, a parade down University Avenue, a Homecoming dance and plenty of reunion events.

This favorite Susquehanna tradition dates back nearly 100 years.  The first Homecoming was celebrated in 1922.
