Homecoming Weekend

Save the Date for Homecoming Weekend 2019: October 3-6

Save the date and plan on returning to campus for a fun-filled Homecoming Weekend! Activities include the Heritage Day Luncheon, Athletics Hall of Fame induction, Dinner Theatre, Alumni Awards presentations, class reunions, theatre performances and athletics games.

If you graduated in a year that ends in a 9 or a 4, you will be celebrating a milestone reunion! Let us know if you'd like to help plan your class reunion by emailing Bailey Carr, director of alumni relations and annual giving, at or calling 816.501.3780.

All alumni and friends are welcome! A full schedule for the weekend will be posted this summer, and registration will open in August. You can also keep up-to-date on the Alumni Association's Facebook page.

Questions? Contact us at or 816.501.3780.
