There is still time to register for Homecoming 2017 on Oct. 7-8. The weekend celebration of Brandeis athletics will feature team alumni events, a cookout, the Joseph M. Linsey Athletics Hall of Fame induction ceremony and a party at the Gosman Sports and Convocation Center.

The 2017 Hall of Fame inductees include the 1989 men’s tennis team, Jon Fobia ’73 (soccer), Greg Steelman ’91 (track and field), Michael Mayer ’94 (fencing), Marshall Goldman ’03 (swimming) and Sara Albert ’04 (softball).

Registration for the Hall of Fame ceremony is $75 per person and includes hors d’oeuvres, beer and wine. After the ceremony, there will be a party in the Gosman Center. Registration is $25 per person and includes light snacks, beer and wine. Earlier in the day, there will be a cookout in the Gosman Parking lot for $10 per person.

Purchase tickets and RSVP for alumni events.

If you are interested in participating in the Alumni Athlete career panel earlier in the day, contact Alexandra Stephens ( or 781-736-3623) at the Hiatt Career Center at Brandeis. This is a great opportunity for current students, recent grads and alumni to network and get to know fellow Judges.
