Anticipation is building for Holy Cross Homecoming 2013 Oct 4-6. Your campus is looking especially beautiful as summer greenery gives way to golden autumn hues — and the line-up of events is equally dazzling!

Sit in on classes and discover what today’s students are learning … cheer on your teams at a classic Sader Nation pep rally … meet noted alumni authors … take a campus tour … network with classmates and Crusaders who share your interests.

Plus, Purple Pride will be on display at the host of athletic contests on the weekend schedule, including Crusader football vs. Harvard, women’s soccer vs. Patriot League rival Lafayette, and a men’s hockey exhibition game against Canada’s Simon Fraser University.

Check out all the events here — check back often for updates or changes! Among the highlights:

  • The annual In Hoc Signo Award dinner, recognizing the contributions of the five 2013 honorees, from the classes of 2003, 1981, 1971, 1965, and 1953.
  • The Black Student Union alumni’s celebration of 45th anniversary of the BSU and the 40th anniversary of women at Holy Cross
  • Kimball brunch
  • Extended Bookstore hours
  • Post-game alumni and family reception
  • Mass in Mary Chapel with Fr. Boroughs
  • And much more!
