Another year, another week of Homecoming celebrations at Widener! Following the theme of All Roads Lead to Homecoming, past and current members of The Pride showed their spirit at over 30 different events. 

This year’s week of events had annual favorites such as the Future of Work Conference, Tailgate Village, the crowning of Homecoming Royalty, and Broom Drill, as well as some new celebrations including the first ever alumni band joining the Widener marching band for a special halftime performance, and the dedication of the last PMC drumhead used in 1972. 

A rainy day couldn’t dampen the spirit of The Pride! Relive the festivities with some figures and photos below:

60+ Pennsylvania Military College alumni and guests celebrated over three days
37+ campus partners and student groups at Tailgate Village
31 points scored by The Pride for a Homecoming win
