2019 Homecoming Events

The Office of Student Life is working hard to make BC Homecoming 2019 the best celebration to show off the Renegade Pride! With your enthusiastic and committed participation, Homecoming 2019 will be an exciting and enjoyable event.

This year the Homecoming 2019 theme is: "Renegades Around the World: #BCSGA"

While many of the events are open to individual participation, the Office of Student Life encourages you, as the BC community, to form teams and show off your BC spirit and pride with new and old traditional homecoming events.

This year's theme and activities are centered around culture, peace, and feeling the Renegade spirit. Being a stronger individual builds a better future for our community. Show your BC Renegade Pride by participating in any of the special events planned.

Also show your Renegade Spirit by posting your #BCSGARenegades to Instagram, #SGABC on Facebook, or #BCSGA on Twitter, and share your photos with others.

In order to save you time and have a prosperous homecoming experience, the Office of Student Life advises you to read each section of the packet thoroughly and carefully for the rules and the events for Homecoming 2019.
