Homecoming and Family Weekend 2019

More than 1,000 Gannon and Villa Maria College alumni and Gannon family and friends returned to campus for an exciting weekend of events during the university’s Homecoming and Family Weekend on Sept. 26-29.

The weekend combined the traditional events of Homecoming with unique activities to create a fun and lively atmosphere. The classic pre-game tailgate featured the FreeDaps improv rap group, DJ music, student performances, and a food truck from Underdog BBQ, the restaurant featured on Discovery Channel’s “Undercover Billionaire.” At game time, fans cheered on the Golden Knights as they pushed their way to victory over Clarion University at McConnell Family Stadium.

New to this year’s Homecoming celebration was the “Flashback Friday at Antler’s Pub.” The event highlighted the Knight Club as the original Antler’s Pub of the ’60s and ’70s, a landmark of Gannon University. Guests enjoyed music of the decades, a beer garden, specially designed t-shirts, and great company.
