Save the date for Homecoming 2015: Oct. 9-11
By Steve Seepersaud
What made your Binghamton experience special? Was it a best friend or favorite professor, or both? Did you have a place on campus where you spent countless hours? Is there a single memory that rises to the top of the list?
Although you can't actually travel back in time, you can do so figuratively by coming back to Binghamton for Homecoming 2015. All alumni and their families are welcome to join us Friday to Sunday, Oct. 9-11 to relive memories and make new ones.
We are planning a number of activities that will celebrate your past and showcase the amazing Binghamton University of today. Homecoming weekend will have traditional events such as the Friday night basketball showcase, Saturday tailgate party, men's soccer game, Black Student Union Fashion Show and Greek God. Other events will provide opportunities to catch up with friends, interact with current students and see the newest additions to our campus.
One of those will be the new Alumni Center in Old O'Connor Hall. This will be a first stop for alumni returning to campus, where you can be welcomed, spend time looking at memorabilia and connect with friends. In fact, Homecoming 2015 will have a dedication ceremony for this special space.
The Mid-60s Reunion will remember a wild time on campus when students were changing as were the campus and world around them. Events will take place throughout the weekend for the Classes of 1964-66. Details will be posted to the Homecoming website later in the spring. If you would like more information, or want to help Jeannette Mehrer Lasansky '65 and Bob Freeston '65 plan activities, contact the Alumni Relations office.
If you want to have a reunion for your class year or special interest group, you can take the lead on organizing the event, and our Homecoming 2015 website has advice to help get you started.
As more details come together, they will be shared through the Homecoming 2015 website. Registration will open in mid-July. In the meantime, make plans to attend and invite a friend or two to join you. Fall colors, crisp air and Binghamton spirit make Homecoming an event you won't want to miss.
