Queen’s Homecoming 2020 will take place Oct. 16-18.

All alumni are welcome to come back to campus to celebrate. This is a milestone reunion year for graduating class years ending in 5 or 0. Students graduating in 2020 will celebrate their first Homecoming as alumni and mark the occasion of their “Reunion Zero.”

Homecoming weekend will feature a wide selection of events, including a football game against the Ottawa Gee Gees at Richardson Stadium at 1 pm on Saturday, Oct. 17.

“Homecoming provides an important opportunity for alumni to reconnect with Queen’s and their classmates, and to come together to support important fundraising initiatives,” says Vice-Principal (Advancement) Karen Bertrand, Artsci’94. “We look forward to welcoming graduates from around the world back to Kingston in October.”

A weekend filled with events for alumni

Official events organized by the university will include open houses, faculty receptions, varsity sporting events, and special receptions for alumni returning to campus and celebrating certain milestone reunions, such as the Tricolour Guard Reception and Dinner (for alumni who graduated 50 or more years ago) with Principal and Vice-Chancellor Patrick Deane and Chancellor Jim Leech (MBA’73). 

Online registration for Homecoming 2020 will begin on June 22, and alumni thinking about attending can visit the Homecoming website for updates.
