ARLINGTON, Va. - With just a few days left in September and already into the Fall season, that can only mean one thing: Homecoming weekend is right around the corner.
This year, Homecoming and Family Weekend will fall on the weekend of October 12-14, with plenty of events to come out and celebrate Marymount athletics, catch up with former teammates and coaches, see updated facilities, and much more.
For athletics, it all kicks off on Friday night, October 12, with the Marymount Athletics Hall of Fame at The Westin Arlington Gateway. Three former Saints along with the first induction of a team will take place that night, as well as recognition of Marymount's 2017-18 Rookies and Athletes of the Year. Cocktail hour is set to begin at 6 p.m., followed by dinner and ceremony at 7 p.m. For more information and registration, please click here.
A great way to cap off the Friday night following Hall of Fame is to head across the street to Mussel Bar at 9 p.m., for the Saints Club Alumni Social where you can catchup with Marymount alumni, friends, staff, and faculty. For more information and registration, please click here.
