Our alumni are a part of the Wingate family forever. We celebrate that connection during Homecoming. Will we see you there?

Wingate University alumni and the Bulldog mascotHomecoming Weekend offers a full slate of activities and events for students, alumni and their families. It’s the perfect time to visit campus and reunite with classmates, friends, faculty and staff.
