Homecoming

September 22 - 24, 2017

Revisit. Reconnect. Remember.

Homecoming is a special tradition at Roberts Wesleyan College, where alumni, students, parents, and friends to come together and celebrate our community of friendship, scholarship, and transformation.

This year, internationally acclaimed photographer Rick Guidotti will be on campus to talk about transforming the way we perceive people living with genetic, physical, intellectual and behavioral differences, and how we can be a more inclusive compassionate community. His Positive Exposure photography exhibit, presented by the Golisano Foundation, will be displayed in the Howard Stowe Roberts Cultural Life Center as a centerpiece of discussion for the weekend.

Five-year reunions will take place throughout the weekend. Reunion years (Classes ending in ‘7’ and ‘2’) have designated areas to meet during the Taste of Roberts: Hors d’ouevres & Reunions event on Saturday night.
