The mission of Penn State Homecoming is to celebrate tradition and instill pride in all members of the Penn State family through active engagement of students, alumni, faculty and staff across the community.


We believe that the traditional sense of a homecoming celebration encompassing a parade and football game has evolved, and strive to set a new standard for homecoming celebrations.. Penn State Homecoming organizes a number of exciting events in the spring and fall semesters culminating with the events of Homecoming Week.


Getting involved in Homecoming as a student is a very rewarding and unique experience. You can get involved in many ways, such as:

  • Being a Captain
  • Being a Committee Member
  • Competing with an organization as an Overall Competitor
  • Participating in Events with your student organization
  • Walking in the Parade as an Organization
