Homecoming is THIS WEEKEND!
Homecoming is a special tradition at Roberts Wesleyan College, where alumni, students, parents and friends will come together to celebrate community, friendship, scholarship and transformation. Homecoming at Roberts Wesleyan will take place Friday, Sept. 22, through Sunday, Sept. 24, on campus.
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.
The public are welcome to attend all events except alumni reunions.
Members of the media are welcome to attend any of Roberts Wesleyan College’s Homecoming activities throughout the weekend. For questions or additional information, call or text Ryann Bouchard-Guglielmo at 585-794-3806.
