Homecoming & Family Weekend

Welcome Alumni, Parents and Families!

Please makes plans to celebrate with us on October 18-20, 2019.  We look forward to celebrating reunions for the classes of 1969, 1994 and 2009 and Alpha Delta Pi. If you would like to serve as a class agent, please e-mail teamju@ju.edu.

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

Homecoming & Family Weekend takes place on October 18-20, 2019. Let’s make some new memories!

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.
