Franciscan Homecoming Weekend! | Franciscan University of Steubenville
  • Franciscan Homecoming 2019!

    October 4-6, 2019

    Join us for a Franciscan Homecoming weekend dedicated to thanking our heavenly Father for the many blessings enjoyed by Franciscan University of Steubenville!

    Joined this year with the Inauguration of Father Dave Pivonka, TOR, as our seventh president!

    Plus the old regulars—Parents Weekend, Alumni events, and the St. Francis Festival—will make it a fun-filled weekend no matter who you are!

    There will be lots of food, fun, and games for young and old and everyone in between. Alumni are particularly invited to honor fellow alumni at an Alumni Awards reception and banquet on Friday evening. Student, alumni, and local talent will be highlighted at entertainment events throughout the weekend. And, of course we will celebrate our faith with Mass each day.

    Event Highlights:

    • Alumni Reception and Awards Ceremony
    • Kelly Roggensack Memorial Races
    • Household Life Mass
    • Blessing of Animals
    • Baron Sporting Events
  • Homecoming 2019 Schedule of Events

Franciscan University of Steubenville is no ordinary university, and a Franciscan education is no ordinary education. Rather, it's an education as rigorous and demanding as it is faithful--an education that challenges you intellectually, forms you professionally, and feeds you spiritually.


You can help Franciscan lead the way in providing a faithfully Catholic education!
