Widener’s vibrant community, rich history, and beloved traditions were at the center of this year’s Homecoming celebration. 

The weeklong celebrations brought alumni and students – from PMC alumni to first-year students -- to the university’s Chester campus and nearby for a series of events including professional development workshops, program reunions, the athletics Hall of Fame induction ceremony, and a lively Homecoming Tailgate Village.
