Welcome to one of the biggest series of events: Homecoming Weekend at Saint Mary's College! Last year, Homecoming made its triumphant return to our campus after nearly 20 years. This year, we're ramping up the events and Saint Mary's spirit with something for everyone.
Enjoy a full week of events, with a spectacular blowout on Saturday, November 11, including a community parade, a dozen mini-reunions, SMC trivia happy hour, and student dance. Then sports fans can go crazy for a basketball doubleheader on Sunday, November 12 plus a family-friendly Fan Fest. It's going to be a great weekend!

Yes! Almost all events are complimentary, except those where meals will be served and ticketed basketball games.
Can anyone attend?
