Homecoming & Reunion Weekend

Homecoming & Reunion Weekend

Homecoming and Reunion Weekend 2017:
October 6, 7, & 8

Since it is Columbus Day weekend, hotel rooms book quickly due to weddings and "leaf peepers". Even if you're not positive that you're attending Homecoming, book a room just in case. Cancellation deadlines are typically 24-48 hours in advance of your arrival date.

View our list of AREA ACCOMMODATIONS.

As of early July, there were still rooms available in the "Marist Homecoming" room block at the Hampton Inn on Route 9 on both Friday and Saturday nights. The deadline is September 6, at which time they will release the rooms to the public.
