Homecoming 2013

Homecoming weekend is a great time to reconnect with SFU. Our annual Homecoming celebration has transitioned from a "Major Weekend" to more like a "Major Week" with nearly an entire week's worth of events, performances and great activities. Homecoming has become quite the tradition to sport your SFU pride and take advantage of wearing this season's hottest color...RED!
