About Homecoming

Homecoming has been a beloved William & Mary tradition since 1926. Now, Homecoming & Reunion Weekend is a multi-day extravaganza attracting thousands of alumni. There’s something for everyone — parties, class reunions, departmental open houses, children’s activities — plus the traditional parade and football game.

About the 2019 Invitation

Whether you wear it on your sleeve or hold it close to your heart, Tribe Pride is always with you.

It's with you when you hear your favorite song from college. It's with you when you sing “Our Alma Mater,” when you wear your green and gold and when you reminisce about the good times.

Because after all, this is the place where you found your own path, your own way. This is, and always will be, your William & Mary.

However you express it, this Homecoming & Reunion Weekend, come home and share your pride.


This Homecoming & Reunion Weekend is all about celebrating our William & Mary pride — in all the amazing variety of ways we choose to express it. For our Homecoming theme, we invited people from all parts of our community — alumni, parents, family, friends, students, faculty and staff — to be photographed showing their William & Mary pride. These are their stories.
