Homecoming

Each year, alumni, students, and friends of Pitt gather together for the University of Pittsburgh's Homecoming weekend. The Pitt Alumni Association is a proud sponsor of many of the events that take place during the weekend. The Blue and Gold Society is involved in organizing the tradition of electing a Homecoming King and Queen as the Alumni Association offers various events and opportunities for alumni to connect with each other. Past events include a bonfire, pep rally, fireworks and laser show, Panther pre-game party, and Freshman Family weekend, just to name a few.
