Brescia alumnae at Homecoming


Join us this year for a virtual
Homecoming celebration!

We know that Homecoming will not be the same.
Rather than coming home to Brescia, we hope you will join us
to connect and celebrate from your home.

 Brescia has chosen to celebrate its Virtual Homecoming October 13-18
and we are excited to share the full schedule.

Spread the word and we look forward to celebrating with you in October.
