Drury University Homecoming

Each year, Drury University celebrates Homecoming in the spring semester as part of the Panther Basketball season.

Sharing the special memories of Drury through the years, Homecoming perfectly captures the Drury culture through reminiscing the times that made each Drury experience unique and memorable. From formal dress attire for dinner or ticket night in the Commons to the abundance of squirrels on campus or the fabulous fireworks show to the memorable moments of Graduation - Drury memories are alive and well today.

The Drury Office of University Advancement partners with Student Union Board, Drury Athletics and the Drury Alumni Council to offer Drury Alumni Homecoming Festivities.
