Homecoming is a rain or shine event. Most activities take place on grassy areas and athletic fields. Brick and concrete walking paths provide access to most of the venues; however, wheelchair and walker access may be difficult in a few areas. Parking at the 9th Avenue lot provides access to an upper and lower brick path which lead to the festivities and games. Golf carts will be circulating around campus parking lots to provide rides for those with limited mobility.
Of course! Take time to get reacquainted with the Ursinus campus during your visit. View our pre-scheduled times and see how much campus has changed in recent years.
