These virtual opportunities include spirit contests, opportunities to hear from leading faculty and staff, our virtual 5k, DIY Craft Contest, Family Bingo, and more. So, mark your calendar and plan to celebrate Homecoming from your home and Family Weekend as a family, no matter where you are.

We also encourage you to visit the Family Weekend and student Homecoming websites for more virtual fun!!

Virtual Purple on the Plaza

Every other year during Homecoming, clubs and organizations across campus featured their work, events, and Tommie Pride during Purple on the Plaza, with tables spread across the lower quad that alumni could visit in person.  This year we're featuring them virtually in the options listed below. Check out how you can get involved with student and alumni organizations, no matter how far you are from campus.

DIY Craft Campus Scene

Build your favorite place on campus at home! Alumni will have a week to create campus scenes using items found in their home. Please email a photo of your campus scene to alumni@stthomas.edu by noon on Friday, October 9. The following day, on Homecoming, we will post the photos on Facebook and have people vote for their favorite. The three submissions with the most votes will win a Tommie swag kit.
