Choose Your Events
We strongly encourage you to pre-order your Homecoming shirt, as we will have VERY limited sizes on hand during Homecoming Weekend.
When you check in at the Wildcat Center for Homecoming, you will receive your welcome packet and any entrance bracelets/tickets needed for ticketed events.
Purchased tickets can be picked up at check-in. Any remaining tickets will be sold on a first come, first served basis.
Casual attire is appropriate for most events during Homecoming. Many of our events are designed to keep you active, so bring comfortable shoes.
October weather in Charlotte can be quite unpredictable, so be sure to bring layers, including a warm jacket.
Weather for past events has been anywhere from sunny and hot to cloudy, cool and rainy, so be prepared! Before you travel, check the local weather forecast and pack accordingly.
Where to Eat
The Dining Center will be open for regular meal service throughout the weekend.
There will also be different JWU Alumni owned food trucks on campus during the block party.
- Brunch: 12:00pm-2:00pm
- Dinner 6:00pm-9:00pm
The Homecoming schedule gives you and your Wildcat family time to soak up the beautiful campus and surrounding community.
