Homecoming weekend (Nov. 16 – 17, 2018) is a chance to slow down and remember your experience at Pasadena/PLNU. You'll have the opportunity to catch up and reminisce with friends, reconnect with the university, meet current students, and also make new memories.
Check-in and Registration Hub
This year, all of our alumni guests will check in at our new Alumni Hub upon arrival. There, you'll be greeted by a fellow alum and will receive a name tag and homecoming T-Shirt. Your name tag will act as your ticket into any of the events for which you register. Unless otherwise noted, all homecoming events need to be registered for using the registration link.
