Join us at Homecoming 2014: Oct. 17-19
By Steve Seepersaud
We are excited to announce that registration is open for Homecoming 2014! Come back to Binghamton for a weekend that will enable you and your friends to relive some of the greatest times of your life!
Homecoming is a wonderful opportunity to reconnect with classmates, talk about the great times you had at Binghamton and share what you've been up to since you last talked or met in person. On top of all of that, you can see your favorite familiar places on campus and in the local area while taking in all that's new.
All alumni and their families are welcome at Homecoming. Join us for a full weekend – or a day – of events including Tailgate '14, a men's soccer game, Black Student Union Fashion Show and Greek God. We'll have opportunities for alumni to share professional experiences with current students, including pre-med and pre-law panels, an Alumni of Color networking event and the 13th annual School of Management Mentoring & Networking Event. Homecoming 2014 will also include the EOP 45th Anniversary Luncheon, Decker School of Nursing Homecoming Simulation Elimination and celebrations for the classes of 1954, 1964, 2004 and 2014, Pi Lambda Phi and the Pep Band.
And, for the first time, Homecoming will have TIER Talks: Talks that Inspire, Educate and Resonate – a speaker event in which some of our most dynamic faculty, alumni and special guests will discuss Rethinking Success: Thriving in the Modern World. If you're interested in growing and transforming, this unique event will inform and inspire you. Our accomplished speakers will share how the following relate to happiness: better relationships, forgiveness, creativity, mindfulness and avoiding negative self-esteem that comes with focusing on wealth. You'll leave with "next steps" intended to radically change your perspective. A casual reception afterward will provide opportunities to meet the speakers and ask questions.
You can see the full schedule of events at the Homecoming website. Register online by Friday, Oct. 10. If there are alumni you want to see at Homecoming, start reaching out to them now to invite them to join you. Homecoming is always more fun when you can share the experience.
If you have any questions, contact the Alumni Relations office at 607-777-2424 or firstname.lastname@example.org. We look forward to seeing you in the fall!

SHARE YOUR EXPERTISE WITH US! The Alumni Relations office is asked to recommend alumni who are expert speakers.

Include your name, class year, and a brief description of your experience and expertise. Supporting material could include a c.v. or link to your website.
