Homecoming Banner

Every year, residence halls are given the opportunity to make a Homecoming themed banner. The residence halls that choose to participate are then pitted against each other to see whose banner is the best. This year’s winner is Chandler Hall! Congratulations for this awesome banner.



This fun-filled event was the first go-round of a new JMU tradition that featured the following: adoptable rescue puppies from Anicira Veterinary Center, live music, the JMU cheerleaders, photo-ops with giant JMU letters, free food, Campus Cookies, crafts and games for kids, and giveaway opportunities! Duke Dog, along with lots of families and friends joined in on the fun.
