Homecoming at Stanford makes for a busy weekend

It is Homecoming Week at Stanford, and thousands of alumni are expected to return to The Farm to revisit, recall and reminisce on one of the most important periods of their lives. The programs of Stanford Athletics are no different, and will welcome back scores of alumni who have proudly worn the cardinal and white in competition.


Numerous programs will host alumni gatherings and even alumni games this weekend. Competition, fun and fellowship as alumni and current student-athletes come together to share the stories and wisdom of their individual Stanford experiences.
