Homecoming Weekend 2011: Celebrating The Bear in All of Us September 23-25
Posted June 10, 2011
Come back to campus and give your friends a big bear hug on Homecoming Weekend September 23-25. Share stories and great memories. Tour the new Center for the Sciences and Pharmacy. Enjoy a plethora of reunions, children’s activities, varsity athletic contests, and much more.
Take in one or more varsity games: football, men’s and women’s soccer, women’s volleyball, women’s tennis, and field hockey. Most of the festivities on Saturday will take place on Golden Bear Boulevard: the Campus Utilities Building (CUB) parking area across from the tennis courts. Homecoming participants should park at the Kevin S. Delbridge Welcome Center lot. On-campus transportation will be provided to and from Golden Bear Stadium, or just follow the “paw prints” to the athletics area.
Be sure to pre-register for free admission to the football game. On September 24 check in at the registration table and receive your hand stamp for the 1:00 p.m. game vs. Nichols College.
