Welcome Home Badgers

Posted on September 21, 2022

Hey Badgers, who’s celebrating Homecoming at Brock University this weekend? While there’s a full lineup of events, activities and get-togethers at Brock, there’s plenty of fun to be had off-campus in Downtown St. Catharines.

Homecoming fan favourites, such as the Steel Blade Classic at the Meridian Centre and Brock Night at the Niagara Grape & Wine Festival in Montebello Park are back. With so much happening in St. Catharines, its a great time reconnect with classmates and friends and create new memories while you explore the core.
