Alumni Invited Back to University Park for Homecoming

Penn Staters of all generations are invited to return to University Park for Homecoming Weekend (Oct. 22-23), with the Penn State Alumni Association hosting a few events.

The student-alumni ice cream social (https://bit.ly/3ufbunf) is one of the most popular events of the weekend and will be held from 1-3 p.m., Friday, Oct. 22, at the Hintz Family Alumni Center. The ice cream social is a free event that all students, alumni, and members of the Penn State community are welcome to attend. Throughout the social, guests can win festive prizes, as well as enjoy performances by students and the Alumni Blue Band.

The Homecoming Parade will be Friday evening and feature many Alumni Association affiliate groups. The parade will be livestreamed, with more information available in the coming weeks.

Following the Homecoming Parade, Penn Staters are invited to attend Guard the Lion Shrine, one of the longest-lasting traditions to Penn State and Lion Ambassadors — Penn State’s Student Alumni Corps. Members from Penn State’s ROTC program, including Army, Navy, and Air Force, come to stand guard and protect the symbol of our best!

There’ll be free food, including popcorn and cotton candy, opportunities for photos with the Nittany Lion, and a variety of games and activities with the opportunity to win giveaways and prizes. Live entertainment will also be present throughout the night, including the Blue Band Drum Line and other student performers. Protect the tradition and celebrate Homecoming with thousands of friends, family, and alumni at the Lion Shrine following the parade.
