Homecoming and Family Weekend: Oct. 26-28

Asbury University will kick off its Homecoming and Family Weekend celebration with a Sibling Invasion on Oct. 25, with more events, performances and athletic competitions on Oct. 26-28.

The Sibling Invasion is an opportunity for the high-school siblings of current students to experience University life by staying in the residence halls, going to class and enjoying meals in the dining hall. There is no cost to attend Sibling Invasion; visit the Admissions pages to register online.

On Saturday, Asbury will induct two alumni — Jack Hazen ’62 and Tim Glenn ’95 — into the Athletics Hall of Fame. Hazen has served as a cross country coach at Malone University for 45 years and helped train the U.S. Men’s distance runners at the 2012 London Olympic Games. Glenn was the first basketball player to score 1,000 points at Asbury University.

The annual trebuchet launch is hosted by Asbury's "Third Nerd" hall.
