HOMECOMING AND HALL OF FAME 2022 IS SATURDAY, OCTOBER 8!
Join us back at Brandeis for the best weekend of the year! Our celebration of Brandeis Athletics will feature men's and women's UAA soccer matches, Hall of Fame Induction Ceremony, and family fun!
In addition to individual team alumni events happening throughout the weekend, Saturday's festivities will begin at 11am with our varsity soccer match vs Carnegie Mellon. There will be a beer garden, food trucks, petting zoo, bounce house, and more next to the soccer field. We invite all alumni, campus community members, families and friends to join us and reconnect.
Homecoming will be highlighted by our 21st Joseph M. Linsey Hall of Fame Induction Ceremony, where we will be inducting four legendary former head coaches. The ceremony will take place on campus from 5-7pm. Early registration tickets for the Hall of Fame are $100, with a discounted rate of $75 for young alumni from the last six years. Kids 12 and under enter FREE. Hall of Fame tickets include heavy hors d'oeuvres and beer & wine.
We will cap off the evening with a post-Homecoming afterparty from 7-10pm. All Homecoming attendees are encouraged to join, regardless if you are attending the Hall of Fame Ceremony. Early registration tickets are $25, and include beer & wine and light appetizers. Additionally, if you purchase a ticket for the Hall of Fame, you receive FREE entry to the Afterparty event.
PLEASE NOTE: The venue for the Hall of Fame Ceremony and Afterparty has changed to Levin Ballroom. The event will no longer be held in Gosman Sports Center.

MORE ABOUT THE 2022 HALL OF FAME INDUCTEES
In 2020, during Brandeis' first-ever Virtual Homecoming Weekend in October, the Brandeis University Department of Athletics announced the next class of Hall of Famers. The newest HOF members will be a quartet of legendary coaches who have each retired after 30 or more years with the Judges.
- Baseball coach Pete Varney, who coached for 34 years and retired in 2015
- Fencing coach Bill Shipman, who retired in 2018 after 37 years
- Women's soccer coach Denise Dallamora, who coached for 40 seasons before retiring last spring
- Men's soccer coach Mike Coven, who retired in 2016 after 44 seasons
As a group, the four coaches were responsible for more than 2300 victories, 94 postseason berths, 62 NCAA Championship appearances, eight ECAC Championships, six trips to the NCAA championship weekend and 45 All-Americans.
We hope to see you back on campus in October! Go Judges!
