Homecoming and Parents Weekend January 29–30, 2016

Alumni and parents come from across the country — and the world — for this beloved Seattle Pacific tradition. At Homecoming, you can attend a theatre production, cheer on the Falcon athletes, attend the Alumni Reception, and much more.


Alumni, reconnect with friends and memories from your time at SPU — a time of personal growth, rigorous learning, and a transforming focus on engaging the culture and changing the world through the gospel of Jesus Christ. 

Parents, visit with your son or daughter for two days of events and programming focused on your student's SPU experience and growth.
