Homecoming & Family Weekend

Welcome Alumni, Parents and Families!

We hope you will make plans to join us for Homecoming & Family Weekend, October 12-14, 2018.

Homecoming & Family Weekend is the perfect time to show your Dolphin pride, reconnect, spend time with family and discover the ever-changing JU Campus.

Let’s make some new memories! Join us October 12-14, 2018.

Jacksonville University held its first Homecoming banquet at George Washington Hotel, with Congressman Charles E. Bennett as the speaker on November 23, 1951. In 1969 JU welcomed Neil Diamond to campus to take the stage in front of students, alumni and faculty. In 1981, Bruce Springsteen brought more than 10,000 fans to the coliseum to celebrate Homecoming, where students enjoyed Springsteen tunes and the Doobie Brothers. Throughout the late 90’s and early 21st century the week of Homecoming has been expanded and JU has adopted some new traditions like Mock Rock where students get together and put on skits, and Phin Splash, our Spirit Showcase and comedy show.
