Queen's Homecoming to return next fall

December 11, 2012

Queen's University principal Daniel Woolf announced yesterday that Homecoming will be reinstated starting in October 2013. "I know how important Homecoming is to our alumni, and I've also heard how important it is to our students, and the local community," Woolf says. "I want to acknowledge the many groups whose perspectives have helped inform my decision to reinstate the Homecoming tradition." Homecoming will be held on 2 weekends in October of next year. "It will blend familiar university traditions -- including home football games -- with new and innovative programming for alumni, students and members of the Kingston community," the institution states. The fall Homecoming at Queen's had been suspended since 2008 to allow the institution to focus its efforts on terminating the unsanctioned Aberdeen Street Party.
