UAlbany Homecoming Weekend 2017 welcomes families and alumni, for a host of great events ranging from speakers to sports and so much in between. There’s Shabbat, too, of course.  See below for important info for visiting families or alumni observant of Shabbat and/or Kosher or simply interested in Jewish campus community.
