General


What is Homecoming & Family Weekend and who can attend?
Homecoming & Family Weekend takes place once a year on the Brockport campus. It allows students and their families along with alumni and friends to get together and celebrate Brockport.

Is Reunion part of Homecoming & Family Weekend?
No. In the past, Homecoming and Reunion were part of the same weekend in September with Family Weekend taking place in November. This year, Reunion was moved to its own weekend in the spring so Homecoming and Family Weekend are once again taking place together.

I have a SERC membership. Will it be open normal hours during Homecoming and Family Weekend?
The SERC schedule will not be interrupted during the weekend. 

Can I use the SERC as a guest while I’m on campus that weekend?
Yes. We are offering a 50% discount on day passes for all alumni and friends from September 18-21. Simply visit the SERC registration desk during that time to obtain a day pass for $3 (regular $6).

Find out more about the Courage Bowl.

Where do I park for the game?
There is open parking on campus on the weekend. Lots V and T provide the most convenient access to Eunice Kennedy Shriver Stadium.
