Homecoming

Mark your calendars for Homecoming 2019

We are planning a great four days of fun, fellowship, reunions and more as Brandon University celebrates Homecoming 2019 this 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.

Homecoming is set for Oct. 17–20, 2019

This will be a great year to attend Homecoming as we build on the momentum of last year’s special BU50 celebration and continue to host your favourite events. Brandon University and Brandon College alumni and friends from every year are welcome back for Homecoming. And, if you’re interested in planning a special reunion this year, whether for your grad class, your department or faculty, or for any group that is ready to reconnect, please contact us for a Reunion Planning Kit.

Remember BU50 Homecoming 2018

Thank you for joining our anniversary party

This year’s special BU50 Homecoming 2018 has concluded, wrapping up a four-day weekend of fun, festivities and community celebrations. It’s been 50 years since the first class graduated from a newly-chartered Brandon University, and this year’s Homecoming capped a year of celebrating BU’s golden anniversary.

It was our biggest Homecoming yet, celebrating all alumni, students, faculty, staff, neighbours friends and everyone.

Thanks to all who shared our special weekend. See you next year!

Huge appreciation to our 2018 sponsors

The BU50 Homecoming 2018 celebration was bigger and better this year, and we couldn’t have done it without significant support from many friends. We thank the sponsors who contributed to our community anniversary party, and we hope you will thank them as well.
