Family & Homecoming Weekend is an annual program that brings together alumni, students, and their families for a weekend of educational, social, and athletic activities. The weekend features a few Berks traditions, including the float-building party, a parade, the crowning of the Homecoming King and Queen, THON Bingo, a carnival, and a bonfire.
This is a great time to visit your student(s) or return as an alumnus and take advantage of some of the exciting opportunities that Penn State Berks has to offer.
