WILMORE, Ky. — Asbury University invites alumni, parents, other family members and friends to campus for the 2011 Homecoming and Family Weekend on Oct. 27-30.

Sibling Invasion, an opportunity for younger brothers and sisters of Asbury students to stay in the residence halls and get a taste of college life, will kick off the celebration on October 27 at 7:30 p.m. with a recital in Akers Auditorium.

Other highlights of the weekend include the Asbury University Music Department’s Homecoming Concert on Friday at 7:30 p.m. in Hughes Auditorium, the men’s Basketball Showcase on Saturday at 2 p.m. in the Luce Center and the men’s soccer game on Saturday at 7 p.m. (with the Homecoming Court at halftime).

“Homecoming at Asbury is a great time to welcome the families of students and our alumni back to campus,” said Carolyn Ridley ’81, director of alumni relations and parents’ programs. “From the longstanding traditions of athletic events and music concerts to the newer ones of the Trebuchet launch and the sitcom, there’s something for everyone to enjoy.”
