In alternating odd years (i.e. 2017, 2019, etc.), student-athlete alumni are invited to return for Homecomings Weekend to spend time with teammates. This provides a less structured schedule for student-athlete alumni to spend time on Grounds attending other University functions, as well as the football game, and creating their own informal gatherings with former teammates. Every year, regardless of the event schedule, VAF and UVA Athletics recognize ACC and NCAA Championship teams who reach their 10-, 25- and 40-year anniversaries.
