Welcome home, Wildcats!

Homecoming 2022

Thank you to all the Wildcats who traveled near and far to join us for Homecoming 2022! We celebrated with a variety of events for students, alumni and other members of the Linfield community. Hundreds of people visited Linfield, and it was wonderful to see everyone laughing, reconnecting and enjoying life together!


Mark your calendars! Next year's Homecoming is scheduled for Sept. 29-30, 2023.
