Homecoming 2017

April 27–30, 2017 | Celebrate

Walla Walla University is celebrating its 125th birthday during 2017, including during homecoming. Enjoy celebrations throughout the weekend as we recall the blessings of our university's history. In addition, we will be celebrating the Aviation Program's 50th anniversary and 10 years since the establishment of the WWU chapter of Engineers Without Borders. 

All former living WWU presidents will be honored at the Alumni Banquet as well as other weekend events - Niels-Erik Andreasen, Jack Bergman, Jon Dybdahl,  WG Nelson, and Cliff Sorensen.

The Messengers, the well-known WWU singing and traveling group lead by Mike Loewen in the 1970’s and 1980’s, will have a reunion as well as a concert Saturday evening during our "Blast from the Past" birthday celebration.
