Frequently Asked Questions
What is Homecoming at Home?
Homecoming at Home is a month-long virtual celebration of Friar pride that you can enjoy from anywhere in the world.
When is Homecoming at Home?
There will be several events offered during the first weekend of October (Oct. 1-3) to kick off the celebration, but this new format also allows us to offer virtual programs throughout the month of October.
Who is invited?
Alumni, parents, students, faculty, staff, fans, and friends — if you consider yourself a member of the Friar family, then you are welcome to join the celebration.
Why is PC offering Homecoming at Home instead of doing an in-person event?
While the college is offering an in-person experience for students this semester, campus visitor restrictions have led us to consider how we can offer a safe experience for all members of our Friar community during the COVID-19 pandemic. Homecoming at Home provides us an opportunity to connect with you in ways that are safe for all.
How can I participate in Homecoming at Home?
Many of the events offered will take place via Zoom or through the Providence College social media platforms. Check out the full schedule to learn how you can make the most of your participation. Some events do require advance registration, and those events are noted on the schedule.
What are some of the events planned?
You can look forward to a State of the College address by College President Rev. Kenneth R. Sicard, O.P. ’78 & ’82G, a political forum featuring surprise guests from the Friar community, the first-ever virtual Friar 5K, a special opportunity to celebrate Mass with PC’s Dominican community, and many other programs throughout October. See the full schedule to learn more about what’s planned.
Is there anything planned for families of current students?
Absolutely! We’re excited to offer specific events for current Friar parents and families, including events specifically for new students and families. You can look forward to Family Talk Tuesdays, a month-long series designed to help parents and guardians support their PC students, and various other programs. Learn more about what’s offered for families.
Can I connect with Homecoming on social media?
You sure can! Check out the PC Homecoming Facebook event and the Friar 5K Facebook event to catch up on the action all month long. We also encourage you to use the hashtags #PCHomecoming and #Friar5K in your social media posts. Happy posting!
What should I wear?
The great thing about virtual events is the casual dress code! We encourage you to wear Friar attire for Zoom meet-ups, unless otherwise noted. Check out our custom virtual backgrounds to truly Friar up your participation.
