| Bring your printed schedule from the Southwestern magazine. |
You may also print the updated online schedule (PDF). (Want to save some paper? We've got a mobile schedule that you can bookmark onto your phone.)
|Pick-up your weekend materials at the Pre-registration Check-in station. |
Your name tag, event tickets, wristband and other weekend materials will be waiting for you in the Red & Charline McCombs Campus Center (#31 on the campus map). Hours are: Friday (noon - 5:30 p.m.) and Saturday (8 a.m. to 5 p.m.)
|Wear your wristband all weekend! |
After you pick-up your pre-registration packet, wristbands will be placed securely on your wrist by University staff. The wristband serves as your "receipt" which gives you access to the Homecoming Hospitality House and other weekend events. Only attendees 21 and older will receive a wristband.
|Parking and transportation tidbits. |
When on campus, watch for pedestrians who may be crossing streets. We are expecting large crowds during the weekend, especially since Southwestern is hosting a Women's Volleyball Tournament. Parking areas, including accessible spaces, are identified on the campus map. Keep in mind that we have new/additional parking available at the Football Field House (sorry, that's not yet on the campus map). If you're going to the Homecoming Parade and Pirates Pep Rally on Friday, the University vans will be shuttling people to and from campus between 5 and 8:15 p.m. For those attending the Homecoming Football Game, you can hitch a ride on Saturday on our free shuttle service (thanks to the generosity of a small group of young alumni) to and from the stadium beginning at 10 a.m. and running continually through 5 p.m. See the updated online schedule for full details about both services.
|Bring cash, your business cards and your camera. |
We encourage you to carry some cash with you throughout the weekend. The one ATM on campus is not equipped to accommodate the large number of people we are expecting. Bringing your business cards allows you quicker access to the Homecoming Hospitality House (and can be handy when you're networking with those you may meet). During (and after) Homecoming, send your photos to firstname.lastname@example.org and post them on social media (be sure to use our hash tags). We would love to add your photos to our Homecoming 2013 photo gallery.

|Extend your weekend fun by one hour! |
