Homecoming will be held on Saturday, November 7. Are you planning to come back? If you’re not sure, here are five reasons you shouldn’t miss it!

1. First and foremost, this is a great opportunity to catch up with your brothers and the actives! You and your family can stop by the Chapter House if you plan to be on campus. 

2. It’s a chance to cheer on the Quakers at Franklin field as they take on Princeton.

3. You can head over to South Street, one of the city’s liveliest streets, teeming with over 300 stores and restaurants. You’ll find entertainment, restaurants, and shops that are, no doubt, nostalgic from your days here at Penn. Who knows? Maybe you’ll even find a new favorite.

4. Stop at Reading Terminal Market with your family or brothers. This is a food-lover’s dream! No matter what your taste is, you’ll find something you enjoy here. There’s every imaginable cuisine, and you can also pick up everything from locally grown and exotic produce to fresh baked goods and Amish specialties.

5. There are so many great places for a night on the town with your brothers. Head over to the 10-block stretch of South Street—It’s packed with restaurants, cafés, and bars. Or stop by Smokey Joe’s for a quick bite and drink!
