JOIN US OCTOBER 15–17, 2021.

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 festivities will include the Inauguration of our 16th President, Laura E. Skandera Trombley , the Roy and Margaret Shilling Lecture , and the President’s Appreciation Celebration (our largest donor event of the year). Plus, we will celebrate with our annual Homecoming festivities, such as the Homecoming picnic, reunion parties (24 in total: class years ending in 0s, 1s, 5s, and 6s), athletic games, the Homecoming Worship Service, and more.
