There's nothing quite like coming home.
Spartan athletes show their pride during the annual Homecoming parade in 2011.
When you return for Homecoming celebrations the week of Oct. 29-Nov. 4, you can get swept up in a number of festivities starting with a College Avenue kickoff and ending with a family weekend at Piney Lake. And then there's everything in between.
Special events this year include a re-dedication of the historic Quad at 12:30 p.m. on Saturday, Nov. 3. After the dedication, enjoy touring your old residence halls during an open house from 1-3 p.m.
This year we'll also honor the memory of professor and poet Robert Watson on Saturday in a Literary Homecoming from 2-4 p.m. in the Virginia Dare Room of the Alumni House.
On Nov. 3, we'll have all the fun you expect from Homecoming live music, games, food, beer garden, alumni tent reunions, children's festival, parade and ending with a men's basketball exhibition game.
