Homecoming Events for Alumni

Alumni are invited to return to WSU, relive the memories, make new connections and celebrate with fellow Warriors during Homecoming.

You are more than welcome to join in on the usual Homecoming traditions like the athletic events and the parade. But there are also special events to celebrate alumni.

Nominate Someone You Know for a Distinguished Award

Do you know an alumnus or a “Friend of WSU” who is doing great things in their career or has been especially supportive of Winona State University?

What about a faculty or staff member who has gone above and beyond to contribute their time and talents to the university?

Take time to give these outstanding individuals the recognition they deserve by nominating them online for a Distinguished Award.

These awards are widely recognized as the highest recognition offered by WSU to individuals.
