Anderson University welcomed alumni, family and friends back last weekend for fun and fellowship during Homecoming 2003, titled "Still Rav’n After All These Years," October 3-4. "We’re enjoyed hosting alumni, family and friends. While many live locally, others traveled from far distances for this year’s homecoming," said Kim Wolfe, director of Alumni Programs. "We provided many opportunities for alums and friends to connect with one another."
Along with the annual homecoming football game and introduction of the homecoming king, queen and court, a 5k run, an alumni quartet performance, RavenFest 2, and a theatrical production entitled "Steel Magnolias" were scheduled during the weekend. The full schedule can be reviewed at www.anderson.edu/alumni/homecoming.
"The people that come back every year are often here to see their friends or professors. Because we are a relatively small campus, our students are often mentored by someone on faculty or staff. Homecoming allows them the opportunity to reconnect" said Wolfe. She also pointed out that many high school students and their parents toured the campus during the weekend while making decisions regarding college in the future.
According to Wolfe, traditional elements were also a part of the Homecoming 2003 experience such the alumni/student fair on University Boulevard. Wolfe indicated that there were be several reunions among different departments and clubs this year.
