Homecoming & Family Weekend 2015

Even in the rain and wind, the atmosphere of Homecoming & Family Weekend was festive and warm. More than 2,500 F&Mily members participated in the weekend, which included events like the Tailgate, football and field hockey games, student concerts, alumni gatherings and parent programs. It was a weekend to remember in so many ways. Our #truebluefandm community doesn't let a little thing like rain keep us from celebrating our yearly fall tradition! Revisit, share and save some of the great images from the weekend on Flickr.
