Come Home for The Weekend!

The Weekend

The Office of Minority Affairs and Diversity will host The Weekend, a series of exciting events geared toward alumni of color and friends of diversity that will take place in conjunction with the University of Washington’s Homecoming, Oct. 15-16.

The two-day celebration includes an alumni mixer, pre-game tailgate and group tickets to the Huskies’ football game against Pac-10 rival Oregon State. To purchase your tickets for any and all of these events, or for more in-depth information, please visit The Weekend web site. More than 400 alumni and friends took part in the festivities last year. We look forward to seeing you there!

Tickets will go fast so make sure to reserve your seat as soon as possible.
