Homecoming: Welcome Home!

Campus will be alive with activities and D-I excitement! Join us for a full day of activities for all ages.

Old meets new at Homecoming 2022!  All Tommies and their families are invited to come back and reconnect with campus and fellow alumni with a variety of activities throughout the weekend.

Join us for Purple on the Plaza before the Tommies take on Drake's football team. Activities will include music, a selfie station, games, face painting, food and drink, and more. Football game tickets can be purchased separately.

Get in on the action by registering to win a St. Thomas Weekender Bag. We will have a drawing for local Tommies and one for those who are out of state. You must complete the RSVP form to enter and don't need to be present to win.
