Save the date for SXU’s 2012 Homecoming Week

Save the date for Saint Xavier University’s 2012 Homecoming Week! This year’s Homecoming theme is “Cougars on Parade” and is scheduled for Mon., Sept. 24 to Sun., Sept. 30.

Similar to Chicago’s famous Cows on Parade art exhibit, SXU departments and organizations have adopted and decorated cougar statues.
