Old traditions and new additions will bring together the greater Brockport community for Bport Homecoming & Family Weekend 2019, being held September 26 through 28, at The College at Brockport. A lineup of events – nearly 40 of them throughout three days – includes family activities, athletic competitions, pre- and post-game festivities, happy hours, anniversary celebrations, and more.

The Village of Brockport will be glowing green for the occasion. Those wishing to participate can display a green lightbulb in front of their business or home to take part. College students and staff are distributing green bulbs to community members throughout the village, and they may also be picked up in 213 Dailey Hall on campus.
