150th Anniversary Events

College Hall

The pandemic has presented challenges for each of us, and high on the list has been our inability to get together with many friends and loved ones during the last year. For us at Wilmington College, we always enjoy gathering with alumni throughout the year, but especially on those blue sky, autumn weekends at Homecoming. This Sept. 17 and 18, WC is presenting a Homecoming like no other and we want you to be a part of it. It will serve as the culmination of the College’s 150th anniversary observance, which will go out with a bang. Yes, there will be fireworks! Also, football, food trucks, music, pageantry, attractions on the mall for children young and old, special reunions and, best of all, this festive atmosphere will provide a backdrop for your reconnecting with friends and classmates.
