Time flies, especially when you’re juggling work, family, and service. Alumni Homecoming is the perfect opportunity to take a refreshing break from your busy schedule and reconnect with your alma mater!

Rest and relax for a fun weekend at PCC without any thought of to-do lists or required activities. All events are optional—allowing you to create a custom experience that lets you feel right at home.

See how the campus has improved and what’s stayed the same. You’ll be able to reconnect with old friends, experience the excitement of campus traditions, and enjoy a wonderful weekend with your family or friends.

You are family! Our priority is for you to feel welcome, comfortable, and confident on campus. Here’s what you need to know:

The Alumni Dinner is a semi-formal event. Business casual is appropriate, including polos, button-up shirts, khakis, or suit pants for men and dresses and skirts for women.

For recreational activities such as the campus tours, Alumni Kickoff Reception, Alumni Tailgate, Dolphin Cruise, Sports Center, and Camp o’ the Pines, recreational or casual attire is appropriate.

  • For men, this would include casual pants, athletic pants, jeans, or shorts (longer lengths), and sports shirts. Pants are needed for rock climbing, and trunk-style swimsuit is requested for the water park.
  • For women, recreational attire would include casual dresses and knee-length denim/casual skirt or walking shorts with blouse. We ask that you not wear pants or denim jeans. Wind/athletic pants are needed for rock climbing (optional for ice skating), and a modest swimsuit that fully covers midriff is requested for the water park.

Clothing should be modest and appropriate for the occasion.

For more information, visit the guest dress guidelines.

Registration for the 2023 Alumni Homecoming will be available in early May.
