Welcome home: Homecoming Weekend 2012

Fall 2012 : Liberty University Alumni Relations

Excitement is building for this year’s Homecoming Weekend on Oct. 5-6.

Along with the traditional favorites, such as the Homecoming football game, the Homecoming Parade and the Alumni Tailgate, there are several new events and activities this year designed to showcase the newest facilities on campus and provide alumni with opportunities to fellowship with former classmates and faculty and staff members.

Check-in and Homecoming Headquarters for alumni will be located in the brand new Hancock Welcome Center this year, as well as a Friday night dessert reception and a post-game party on Saturday. There will be lots of food, friends, and fun for this year’s celebration, so make your plans now to join us. Register online at or call the Alumni Relations Office at (800) 628-7973.

“Homecoming is a great opportunity for alumni to see firsthand everything they have been reading about that has happened at Liberty over the past year. There is no better way to reunite with former classmates and professors and witness how God continues to bless us in new ways,” said Tyler Falwell, Alumni Relations director.
