Get ready for Homecoming 2022 on October 8 – News
Homecoming comes a little earlier this fall with Campbell University celebrating its annual gathering of students and alumni on October 8, culminating with a 4 p.m. kickoff against Charleston Southern at Barker Stadium- Lane.
This year’s Homecoming festivities will include the annual Main Street Parade, the Wrestling Program’s annual outdoor event in front of the Pope Convocation Center and the return of the pre-game Alumni Village, complete with food trucks, games and live music from local favorite Bantum Rooster.
The day will also include reunion celebrations for the classes of 1982, 1997 and 2012, as well as the Golden Club 50th meeting of the classes of 1970, ’71 and ’72.
“Homecoming celebrates the generations of camels who have called Creek home over the years,” said Sarah Swain, assistant vice president of alumni engagement. “We are thrilled to bond with our current students, families and alumni during this favorite Campbell tradition.”
