Homecoming has been a tradition at Penn State since our first Homecoming game was played on October 9, 1920, against Dartmouth. More than ninety years later, we continue to celebrate our traditions, honor our purpose and carry our pride by participating in many events each year. Penn State Homecoming remains steadfast in creating and upholding pride and tradition amongst those who bleed blue and white.
Homecoming kicks off the week before the Homecoming Football match up. Over the week, Theta Delta Chi and its partner sorority for Homecoming participate in various events that run from the talent contest to the Homecoming parade on the Friday night before the game. During the week, Theta Delts host various social gatherings with their partner sorority to celebrate the common bonds that Penn Staters share and welcome back alumni that make it in for the festivities. On the day of the Homecoming Game, Theta Delts hold an alumni tailgate, alumni dinner / pig roast and the annual Alumni House Corporation Meeting held at the house.
This year's Homecoming Game will be against the Maryland Terrapins and will be held on October 8, 2016. Kickoff is set for noon. Further details for the weekend will be posted as they become available. If you are planning on attending this year's Homecoming weekend festivities at the House, please RSVP.

The Avillion Award is given in remembrance of Brother Ron Avillion Sr. Sig Tri 1965 (pictured to the right) and his son, Brother Ron Avillion Jr. Sig Tri 1995. Both Brothers tragically passed away after courageous battles with cancers. Prior to entering Omega, these Brothers gave generously of time, talent and effort to our Brotherhood over the years.
