Homecoming, Alumni & Family Weekend
Homecoming, Alumni & Family Weekend is an annual tradition to celebrate all the good times at Iona University and to welcome our alumni, family, and friends to campus! There are many events planned throughout the weekend.
This annual observance honors the selfless dedication of veterans for the cause of peace, freedom, and justice. Each year the University chooses a theme for its Week of the Peacemaker and through lectures and activities coveys this theme in diverse and dynamic ways.
The entire Iona community comes together to provide Thanksgiving food baskets for hundreds of families served by local community organizations in New Rochelle, Yonkers, and the Bronx.
Every year, we celebrate the multi-layered history of the University and invite the Iona community to explore new ways of fulfilling the Founding Brothers' vision. The week offers presentations, films, liturgies, and round-tables, all focusing on a common theme.
