Homecoming 2013 will take place From October 17 to 20, 2013. The McGill Alumni Association will welcome several thousand weekend guests at Homecoming. The downtown and Macdonald campuses will display their autumn colours and the McGill community will show what’s happening in the University’s faculties and schools, through a variety of walking tours, visits and Deans’ receptions.
The always-popular Leacock Luncheon is an event not to be missed. Keynote lecturer Dan Needles, the playwright behind the popular Wingfield Series that has played across Canada, and winner of the Stephen Leacock Medal for Humour will delight the audience with his quaint, entertaining, and laugh-out-loud tales.
Events ranging from reunion dinners to Classes Without Quizzes give graduates from all over the world the chance to reconnect with McGill and with each other, to rekindle friendships of long ago and revisit the classrooms, professors and neighbourhoods that played a starring role in the most formative years of their lives.
