Embrace Your Hilltop Pride

There’s not a more festive time on the hilltop to be with your student than Homecoming and Family Weekend. The whole university community comes together for this heartfelt tradition to share memories, make new ones and embrace our hilltop pride.

Hilltopper families gather for friendship and fun at Homecoming Weekend.

“We enjoyed being with Yara on campus, meeting professors, staff and other families, and seeing all of the enthusiasm during Homecoming weekend,” says Samir Ashrawi, father of Yara ’12 and freshman Raneem ’16. “St. Edward’s brings out the best in our daughters. We’ll definitely be back for Homecoming this year.”
