Homecoming weekend is a time to bask in the beauty of Mercyhurst’s campus and enjoy some fun activities with friends and family.
This year, Homecoming Weekend begins with the Alumni Golf Outing benefiting the James R. McKeever Scholarship fund. This is located at the Lake View country club starting at 11:30 a.m. on Friday, Oct. 4. Later in the evening there will be a homecoming/family bingo from 5-7 p.m. at the recreation center. Friday’s events will conclude with the men’s lacrosse Alumni Game at Tullio Field at 9 p.m.
Alumni can get a “running start” to Saturday’s events by participating in the 3rd annual Alumni 5k beginning at 9 a.m.
For students and family, the Women’s field hockey team will be playing at 9:30 p.m. on Tullio Field. Families are encouraged to attend the family lunch north of Tullio Field at 11 a.m. while alumni are welcomed to tailgate starting at 11:30 a.m. This is in preparation for the football team taking on Cheyney University at 1 p.m. Women’s hockey will also host Ohio State University at 7 p.m. at the Ice Center. Tours will be available from 9 a.m. to 11 a.m. for those who would like a personalized guide around campus.
Sunday will close Homecoming weekend with Protestant service at the Student Union at 9:15 a.m. and Catholic Mass in Christ the King Chapel at 10 a.m. After the services, everyone is welcome to Sunday brunch at Egan dining hall from 10 a.m. to 1:30 p.m.
Free university t-shirts will be given to the first 200 guests who register for Homecoming Weekend. This includes both families and alumni. The t-shirts will be available for pick-up during the weekend’s events.
