WASHINGTON - The George Washington University Department of Athletics and Recreation will proudly host Homecoming, January 23-25, in Foggy Bottom.

"Homecoming has become a strong tradition at GW where we recognize the success of the GW community and welcome back alumni to connect with their former classmates, teammates and alma mater," said Director of Athletics and Recreation Patrick Nero. "Once again this year several of our athletics teams are in action at home this weekend, and we look forward to seeing so many GW alumni Raise High with pride in celebration of some of the great achievements by our students and alumni."

The Slam Dunk Brunch runs from 11 a.m.-1 p.m. on the third floor of the Lerner Health and Wellness Center, and will feature food from Pork Barrel BBQ, Cava Grill, Mac's Donuts and Tonic @ Quigley's. Men's Basketball Head Coach Mike Lonergan will address the crowd at the conclusion of the brunch.
