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.

Other highlights of the week include:

Thursday, Nov. 1

Friday, Nov. 2

Saturday, Nov. 3

In addition to all the events and activities, various groups will have special reunion activities. Those groups include:
