Homecoming Weekend 2013

Boston College Homecoming 2013

Boston College alumni, parents, and families are invited to join the BC Alumni Association in celebrating the return of Homecoming Weekend, Oct. 4–5.

Our activities begin on Friday with Kickoff to Homecoming. This family-friendly event will be held at the Cadigan Alumni Center and will feature food, activities like face painting and banner making, and BC Athletics ticket raffles.

At the end of Kickoff to Homecoming, everyone is invited to parade over to Alumni Stadium with members of the BC band and pep squad for the official Homecoming Pep Rally and fireworks display.

The fun continues on Saturday morning at FanFest. The Alumni Association’s regular home game tailgate offers family-friendly activities and food and drinks for purchase.

GOLD (Graduates Of the Last Decade) are also invited to a special pre-game event—First and GOLD—on Saturday morning on Walsh Patio, facing More Hall. Registered guests will enjoy food, fall brews, live music, and cornhole.
