Tribe Pride, Your Way

Homecoming & Reunion Weekend 2019 brought the W&M community together

By Claire De Lisle M.B.A. ’21

This year’s Homecoming & Reunion Weekend was all about celebrating the William & Mary pride that unites us, in all the wide variety of ways we choose to express it. More than 4,200 alumni, parents, family and friends gathered on campus Oct. 17-20 for the festivities, which included more than 125 events hosted by the Alumni Association and campus and community partners.

Affinity and identity groups gathered for annual favorites, including the Hulon Willis Association Brunch, the Military and Veterans Breakfast presented by the Association of 1775, the Olde Guarde Brunch and more. New events, like the LGBTQ Alumni Brunch, provided fresh opportunities for alumni, students and more to celebrate together.

This year was the biggest yet for reunions, with more alumni than ever attending reunion receptions and reconnecting with classmates. And the whole community came together under the big white tent for the tailgate, Saturday Night Bash and other signature events.

Thanks to all who participated in person or online! We look forward to seeing you next year, Oct. 15-18, for Homecoming & Reunion Weekend 2020.
