Homecoming – October 1st and 2nd






Join the Homecoming Celebration!

Homecoming is a great time to reconnect with friends, classmates, staff and faculty. Whether it’s your first reunion or your 50th, we hope you will come back to campus for this annual celebration of Brescia University College.

Western has made the decision to rename their October 1st and 2nd Homecoming weekend to “Reunion Weekend” where the focus will be on faculty-based class reunions and alumni awards celebrations. Brescia and the other two university affiliates King’s University College and Huron University College, will celebrate Homecoming weekend as originally scheduled.

Every event, except for the football game are FREE of charge this year – so be sure to plan to attend!
