Homecoming is a time of celebration with thousands of alumni returning to Queen’s.

This year’s event – hosted Friday, Oct. 18 to Sunday, Oct. 20 – featured dozens of events including class reunions, faculty open houses, the Homecoming football game, a fundraising pumpkin smash, and celebrations for the Tricolour Guard – alumni marking their 50th anniversary or more.

All of these events are supported by the hundreds of volunteers who help out each year.

Photographers from the Office of Advancement were busy all weekend capturing some of the colour of Homecoming and the people who make up the Queen’s community.
