SPECIAL EVENT | UR Meliora Weekend/RIT Brick City Homecoming 

Two of the biggest colleges in Rochester are having their homecomings this weekend — October 10-13 — and they have lined up quite the collection of events.

The University of Rochester's Meliora Weekend will be headlined by keynote speaker Robert Gates, former Secretary of Defense (Saturday, October 12), and comedian and former "Late Night with Conan O'Brien" writer Demetri Martin (Friday, October 11).

Besides the school's men's hockey team taking on Michigan, Mark Kelly and Gabrielle Giffords will be speaking (October 12), and comedians Colin Mochrie & Brad Sherwood (of "Whose Line is it Anyway?" fame) will be performing (Thursday, October 10).

Those events are just scratching the surface, as there are plenty more to check out. For full event schedules and pricing information, go to, and
