Homecoming and Family Weekend

Each year, Alumni Homecoming and Family Weekend brings Brescia Bearcats together from across the nation and world to celebrate their alma mater, their home away from home. Whether you’re from the class of 1971 or 2021, we invite our alumni back to enjoy a weekend full of activities, and we invite the families of current students to experience the Brescia Difference in a new and exciting way.

We hope you’ll join us for Alumni Homecoming and Family Weekend 2021 October 22-24
