Homecoming Weekend

Alumni, Welcome Home!

Alumni, students, families and friends are invited to Campbellsville University’s Homecoming, a special time of year where we come together to honor and celebrate CU’s past, present and future.

Each year begins with an alumni reunion and induction into the Golden Heritage Club, those who graduated 50 years ago and earlier. From there, we have several events, including the Homecoming Day Parade, Alum Mile, the annual car cruise, lawn festivities, several reunions and more.

We are so excited to welcome you home.
