Homecoming is a celebration of the spirit, mission and tradition at Boston College.  Throughout the week of events and activities, students, faculty, staff and alumni actively engage in fostering a sense of community and pride for BC.  This year Homecoming will encompass athletic events, alumni activities, and residential/social experiences.  We are excited to welcome alumni back to campus, and engage students and community members in our traditions moving forward!
