One of the weekends we look forward to the most is when alumni return home and fill campus for Homecoming. It’s the perfect time for reconnection with friends, reflection on time spent at UR, and revisiting our favorite campus. And this year was particularly special because we’re also celebrating 125 years of being Spiders.

Some of the weekend’s highlights included an event to commemorate the 50th anniversary of the first African American graduates’ arrival on campus, our inaugural Party Under the Lights, URAA Tailgate, New Grad Brunch for the Class of 2018, and Legacy Brunch for Spider families. 

If you weren’t able to join us and are suffering from a case of Spider #FOMO — or if you want to relive last weekend’s fun — you’re in luck! UR’s social media covered #RichmondHC on our channels, so be sure to follow us on Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, and Snapchat @urichmond. 

Is it too early to start planning for Homecoming 2019? Next summer’s Reunion Weekend (May 31–June 2) will have to tide us over until then!
