Homecoming & Family Weekend is one of JWU’s most highly anticipated annual events and we invite your family to join us. Experience traditions like our student parade and culinary demonstrations. Visit the Wildcat Spirit Zone and cheer on JWU athletes. Be part of new opportunities like the Sunday Pop-up Brunch.

We offer a variety of free and ticketed events to choose from to make this weekend memorable. Explore this webpage to learn more, start planning your Homecoming & Family Weekend visit, and mark your calendar today!

New this year, we ask all families to register for Homecoming & Family Weekend. Early-bird sales for select ticketed events begin July 15 and are available when you register. As always, there are plenty of complimentary events to attend at no cost – but please register if you plan to attend.
