Posted July 6, 2010

homecoming09embracealumnewsgifHaven’t been to campus in a while? Come to Homecoming October 1-3 and enjoy a weekend of family fun, including children’s activities, hospitality and food tents, a comedian, campus tours, and the always lively U&ME Dinner Dance.

Reconnect with your classmates and your College. Share stories and hugs. After all, we are family in every sense of the word. Take in one or more varsity athletic contests: football, men’s and women’s soccer, women’s tennis, and field hockey. View the Homecoming schedule.

Most of the festivities on Saturday, October 2 will take place on Golden Bear Boulevard: the Campus Utilities Building (CUB) parking area across from the tennis courts. Homecoming participants should park at the Kevin S. Delbridge Welcome Center lot. On-campus transportation will be provided to and from Golden Bear Stadium, or just follow the “paw prints” to the athletics area.

Be sure to pre-register for free admission to the football game. On October 2 check in at the registration table and receive your hand stamp for the 1:00 p.m. game vs. Salve Regina University. Also hosting games will be Golden Bear men’s soccer (11:00 a.m. vs. University of New England), women’s tennis (noon vs. Eastern Nazarene College), women’s soccer (1:30 p.m. vs. University of New England) and field hockey (6:00 p.m. vs. Nichols College).

At 8:00 p.m. the Campus Activities Board (CAB) will present a comedian at Rivers Memorial Hall.
