An exciting Homecoming weekend is in the works
By Steve Seepersaud
Late nights filled with conversation (and maybe some studying). Hanging out with friends at The Pub or the Union's pool hall or bowling alley. Enjoying a time in your life when you could do whatever you wanted whenever you wanted.
Memories of college life — and the people we made the memories with — stay with us over the years. This fall, we invite you to come back to campus to catch up with friends, revisit the places that mean so much and see what's new on campus. (It may be a lot, depending on when you were a student!)
Make plans now to attend Homecoming 2016, which will take place Friday-Sunday, Sept. 23-25, on campus. All alumni and their families are welcome! Start reaching out to friends to encourage them to join you. Homecoming is always more fun when your friends are here, too!
Be sure to make the Alumni Center in Old O’Connor Hall your first stop on campus. Last year at Homecoming, we celebrated the grand opening of this special space where memories live on through photos and exhibits. And, if you were a student during the era of The Pub, you’ll appreciate that we’ve saved a few benches and tables (sit down at a table and take selfies).
There will be many opportunities to make new memories. Acclaimed dancer and Binghamton alum Bill T. Jones will perform at the Anderson Center. WHRW will have a reunion to celebrate 50 years of keepin’ it lit. LGBTQ alumni will celebrate the opening of the new LGBTQ Center on campus. And, as usual, we’ll have Tailgate, men’s soccer under the lights, Greek God and the BSU Fashion Show. You can even lace up your sneakers and run a 5K. Alumni experts will discuss the future of our political system during a stimulating TIER Talks that will be a "must see" in this presidential election year.
See the Homecoming 2016 website to learn more about the awesome events we’re planning for you and to see a list of hotels offering special rates.
