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.


Penn State Homecoming has become a large student organization that can only run efficiently if separated by its operational processes. As a result, Homecoming has sixteen Committees that work to uphold the mission of Homecoming.


Captain Committees


Every Committee has a team of Captains who execute the tasks that the Committee must accomplish as a whole. Each Captain has specific duties within the Committee. To learn more about the Committees, visit one of the pages above.
