Radford University will welcome back family, friends and alumni for the 2015 Homecoming and Family Weekend festivities on Oct. 16-18. 

The university hosts each year the special weekend of events to engage students – past and present – and their families with the Radford University community. Visitors will see the vast changes to campus and have the opportunity to explore the new facilities and offerings and also share in memories of the past.

Homecoming event highlights include the Alumni and Family Village, Women of Radford Lunch, an Alumni Lacrosse Game and tours of the new Student Recreation and Wellness Center and Student Outdoor Recreation Complex.

The Class of 1965 will celebrate their Golden Reunion on Saturday evening at the Governor Tyler House. Also on Saturday, students and alumni will join in the National Pan-Hellenic Council StompFest Step Show.
