Homecoming 2021

With vaccinations on the rise, we hope that Covid-19 is soon in our rearview mirror, and that we can host in-person events very soon. We are keeping a keen eye on public health orders and will share more as we learn more. But there’s no need to wait — plans are already in the works to include some virtual celebrations for this year’s Homecoming! Mark your calendars for October 15-17, 2021 and we hope you’ll join us for a weekend of live events, tours, reunions, and activities.

Highlights from Homecoming 2020

While we cannot come together to celebrate in person this year, we are bringing some of Homecoming to you! Our memories unite us, and we are linked by the experiences we shared and the bonds we forged at Brandon College and Brandon University. Please enjoy this welcome video for Homecoming 2020.

Virtual tour

Working with eBrandon, we created 360-degree virtual tours to help you explore the entire BU campus.

Take a look


Every year, a Homecoming highlight is the presentation of alumni awards that recognize the accomplishments and achievements of some of our significant alumni. All BU alumni are part of a special group, but every year we pause at Homecoming to recognize those who are truly exceptional. From young alumni who are already making an impact, to faculty who go the extra mile, we recognize and honour contributions that make us all feel both proud and inspired.

Research Connection

An important part of Brandon University is the research we do here — much of which is focused on Brandon and Westman in a way that no other institution does.

Sign lighting

Thanks to valuable ideas and feedback from alumni at our BU50 Homecoming in 2018, this legacy project completely refreshed the landmark sign at 18th Street and Victoria Avenue. It will be turned on permanently for the first time on Thursday evening, Oct. 15.

Bobcats match

Our BU Bobcats soccer squads are playing a match on Sunday, Oct. 17 — and you can watch a LIVE stream on Westman Communications Group. Cheer on the ’Cats and show your pride from anywhere in the world.

Link coming

Thank you to all who attended Homecoming 2019!  Homecoming 2020 has been cancelled due to COVID-19.

Planning for the future

We don’t know what the future holds, but we are planning for next year in the hope to welcome you in person once again as soon as possible. Mark your calendars for Homecoming 2021, from October 14–17.

Homecoming will be a great four days of fun, fellowship, reunions and more as Brandon University celebrates every fall. Get back together with friends, former classmates and faculty as you tour the campus, take in exciting Bobcats action, and enjoy the many Homecoming events.

This will be a great year to attend Homecoming as we celebrate with new events and returning favourites. Brandon University and Brandon College alumni and friends from every year are welcome back for Homecoming.

You’re invited!

All alumni are invited to Homecoming, as well as their family and friends. Every year we also welcome many former faculty members, staff, and community members who are connected to Brandon University or Brandon College in various ways.

Class and faculty reunions

Homecoming 2021 will be a milestone reunion for many of our alumni. We’re especially thrilled to mark the 50th anniversary of the Brandon University Class of 1971. We are also marking special anniversary years for everyone who graduated in a class year that ends in -1 or -6. We will also be celebrating those who couldn’t come to Homecoming 2020.

We are also hearing from many alumni who are looking to plan special reunions. If you’re interested in participating in a reunion of anything from Music to Mathematics, from BUSU to The Quill, reach out and learn how we can support your efforts to connect and reunite.
