Did you know that Homecoming and Family Weekend is open to all of our SLU family?
Faculty and staff are not only welcome to attend, but are encouraged to join University
students, parents and alums to celebrate this bicentennial homecoming weekend, Sept.
In fact, all faculty and staff receive complimentary registration for the inaugural
faculty, staff and student Homecoming Kick-off Tailgate on Friday, Sept. 28, and for
the weekend’s signature event on Saturday, Sept. 29, A Grand Celebration.
Homecoming Tailgate Kick-off
Join fellow members of the SLU community on Friday, Sept. 28, outside of McGannon
Hall. To commemorate SLU’s bicentennial anniversary, students, faculty, and staff
will have the first opportunity to help complete a large paint-by-number mural covering nearly 3,000 square feet.
SLU students worked with renowned muralist Grace McCammond to design the largest public
art project in University history.
A complimentary lunch will be provided from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. for the first 500 faculty
and staff registrants. SLU's catering partner, Sodexo, as well as the offices of Mission
and Identity and Alumni and Donor Engagement, will provide the meal. Click here to sign up for lunch or register for a painting slot.
In the afternoon, from 2-5 p.m., popcorn and Gus' Pretzels will be available for students
as they work on the mural.
A Grand Celebration
On Saturday, Sept. 29, join the University community to celebrate SLU’s 200th anniversary
with a special street festival. This unique event will close Grand Boulevard to mark
the University’s milestone year with live music, food for purchase and a variety of
fun activities for all ages.
