Join us for the 2015 Homecoming Weekend at PhilaU.

We have a weekend full of activities and events for alumni, friends and family. Homecoming Weekend kicks off on Friday with an All Alumni Gathering - your first opportunity to catch up with old friends, connect with current students and meet up with some of your favorite faculty members.

Saturday is filled with events for everyone starting off with the Ram Run/5K in the morning and ending with our exclusive Homecoming Dinner Dance. The Dinner Dance is our signature event and sells out every year. It's an event you don't want to miss!

Schedules and events may be updated periodically. Please check back to stay informed.
