September 22–24, 2023

Homecoming Tailgate

Homecoming was born at Southwestern (and, ultimately, around the world) in April 1909. 

Since that time, our annual celebration has flourished into the party of the year. Return to your Southwestern home for a weekend to remember. 

Homecoming 2023: Building Yesterday, Today, and Tomorrow. Together.

Honor a Southwestern Star!

Celebrate the SU Pirates – current students, alumni, faculty, staff, etc. - who have made your Southwestern Experience memorable by making a gift in their honor! Make a $10 Southwestern Star gift on your registration form. If your honoree is attending Homecoming, they will receive an SU Star button to wear on their name tag. All proceeds will support the Southwestern Fund. Southwestern Stars are not limited to only those attending Homecoming; non-attendees will be informed of their recognition following the weekend. Order your Southwestern Stars on your Homecoming registration form.
