Homecoming week has arrived at Warner Pacific University! Traditionally, college homecoming is a way of welcoming back former students and community members and celebrating the university’s many years of serving students and community. Additionally, it is a way to share the unique culture, accomplishments, and good news of the university and its many activities.
