Home / Homecoming

Return to the Forest!

October 5–6, 2018

We've got Foresters all over the country and the world, but no matter how far you roam, we always want you to come home!

Homecoming 2018 is full of fun new surprises and Forester traditions. Some of those fun new surprises include the Forester 5K, a lecture by Dr. Dwight Brautigam, a new day for Davis Hall Follies, a new day and time for the Homecoming Parade, and a fireworks show! 

“Foresters come back and they get sentimental and maybe a little emotional, and then they feel energized,” said Marcy Hawkins, director of alumni relations and the Forester Fund. “They remember what it really feels like to be a Forester and they take that with them again when they leave.”
