Every year, Patrick Henry College celebrates its alumni with Homecoming Weekend — a chance to enjoy soccer home games with the PHC Sentinels, execute the traditional alumni/student football match, and host a meeting of the PHC Alumni Association.
In the week leading up to Homecoming, the current student body puts together its own special celebration, with the different classes, freshmen through seniors, competing against each other in a lighthearted bid for supremacy. Different activities, silly and serious, dot the week.
The PHC bookstore is open on Saturday, October 4 from 11:00am - 5:00pm.
