A Weekend at Barney’s

If you can allow your mind to transport yourself to a fictional Blackburn Beach with mild temperatures, sugar-white beaches, and crystal-clear waters, I’m sure that you will be reminiscing about summers in the sand.

Expect to have fun in the sun. With abundant outdoor activities, a Weekend at Barney’s is an easy place for everyone to enjoy.

It is a unique destination where alums and students enjoy a vast array of adventures and experiences. From the hustle and bustle of the historical square to the brick-paved sidewalks of downtown to miles and miles of cornfields…athletic competitions, reunions, theatre productions, outdoor activities, drinks, and community are only a glimpse of what Blackburn Homecoming weekend has in store for you!

For those of you who are able to make the trip—and we hope that’s many, many of you—we’re looking so forward to seeing you and celebrating your Homecoming!
