Homecoming 2021: Time to Reconnect

Homecoming is two-day gathering we look forward to annually, when alumni, students, families, faculty, and staff reunite and celebrate the institution they love so much. We invite you to celebrate the Marian University spirit during this time of fun, laughter, and memory-making.
