Homecoming

October 15-17, 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. This year, we’re pleased once again to share the safety and togetherness of a virtual Homecoming.

While we cannot come together to celebrate in person, 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.





Awards

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.

Planning for the future

We don’t know what the future holds, but we are planning for next year and hope to welcome you in person once again as soon as possible. Mark your calendars for Homecoming 2022, from October 13–16.

Homecoming will be a great four days of fun, fellowship, reunions and more. Reunite 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 former faculty members, staff, and community members who are connected to Brandon University or Brandon College in various ways.

Class and faculty reunions

Homecoming 2022 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 1972. We are also marking special anniversary years for everyone who graduated in a class year that ends in -2 or -7. We will also be celebrating those who couldn’t come to our virtual Homecomings in 2020 and 2021.

We are also hearing from alumni interested in planning 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.
