Homecoming & Family Weekend

October 1-3, 2015

We hope you can come and celebrate Homecoming & Family Weekend 2015 with us! This is a great time to tour the campus, sample sporting events, music concerts and coronation festivities as well as experience chapel and celebrate Asbury's 125th Birthday with our students all weekend!

There will be many exciting events happening on campus, including Sibling Invasion, an event especially for brothers and sisters of current Asbury students. Our Music department will showcase its many ensembles, and Athletics (along with the Screamin' Eagles) will need your help to cheer on our Eagles as current students and alumni will be playing throughout the weekend. If that isn't enough, stroll through Wilmore and venture out to the Equine Farm. Fall in Kentucky is absolutely beautiful!

Parents’ Breakfast with the President: Parents, you are invited to a special breakfast with President Sandra Gray on Saturday, Oct. 3 from 9-10:30 a.m.  Enjoy a breakfast buffet and an opportunity to ask questions about Asbury University and the next 125 years! Space is limited, so RSVP to student.development@asbury.edu  with the number attending by Wednesday, Sept. 30.  Pay at the door — Adults: $8.00.

Homecoming is another word for "welcome back," and that's exactly what we would like to do - welcome you back to campus. We hope to see you soon!
