Save the Date for Homecoming

Pitt’s annual homecoming celebration is coming up quickly, and we hope to see you celebrate with us! University and School of Nursing homecoming events will be held from Thursday, October 4, through Saturday, October 6. 

School of Nursing Luncheon

Reconnect with your alma mater and fellow alumni as we honor the 25th and 50th class reunions! The afternoon will include reserved seating for reunion alumni (all years ending in 3 and 8) and honor the classes of 1993 and 1968 with a re-pinning ceremony.

You’ll also get to meet this year’s 2018 Homecoming Court! Pat Bostick, the Panther’s broadcast commentator, will stop by to give a pregame chalk talk.
