Parents, Family, Alumni, Friends! Come celebrate, Franciscan style!
October 4-6, 2013
Join our students, friars, faculty, and staff for a Franciscan Homecoming weekend, October 4-6, 2013, dedicated to thanking our heavenly Father for the many blessings enjoyed by Franciscan University of Steubenville. We are again looking forward to combining Parents Weekend, Alumni Reunion, and St. Francis Festival events into one grand weekend celebration.
We will celebrate and honor the life of our patron, St. Francis of Assisi on Friday night and the fun-filled St. Francis Festival on Saturday afternoon. During the weekend, our Barons tennis, volleyball, and rugby teams will take on visiting schools. The volleyball and rugby matches will take place on campus, and shuttle service will be available for those wishing to attend the men's and women's tennis matches at the Belleview Park courts close to campus.
There will be lots of food, fun, and games for young and old. Alumni are particularly invited to honor fellow alumni at an Alumni Awards reception and banquet on Friday evening. Student, alumni, and local talent will be highlighted at entertainment events throughout the weekend. And, of course we will celebrate our faith with Mass each day.
Young or old, parent or alum, coming from near or far, this weekend will prove to be a memorable time for you and for your family. Please plan to join us!
