Alumni reconnect with residential communities at Homecoming


By Miranda Langrehr '14

"1-rush, 2-rush," echoed off the halls of Newing College, as football teams burst into motion. Around 20 people looked on from the sidelines as students competed in the Newing Co-Rec Games Oct. 12 during Homecoming 2013.

Homecoming 2013Co-Rec was one of several events across campus to engage alumni with current students. Friends Emily Mydosh '13 and Anna Bitterbaum, '13, chatted with students sitting on the steps and watching the game at Newing.

"I'm excited to be back, to be in the spirit of Binghamton," said Bitterbaum.

Bitterbaum is a Newing community alumna, and frequented the Co-Rec games during her time as a student. "I was a cheerleader, the 'spirit squad,' you could call it," she said. "I literally had pompoms."

Over at King of Mountainview, Naboel Salesh, '13 had returned to watch friends play basketball. He stood in a group with current students, who poked fun at him while he reflected on his graduation.  "You really miss the people," he said.

A bit later in the afternoon, there was a rededication ceremony for the Dickinson Object in its new home amidst the beautiful new housing complex.

"This is a symbol of Dickinson. A place to meet, to go off to other places," said Jeff Barker, faculty master of Dickinson community, addressing the crowd. He introduced Don Walford '67, the artist behind the Object.

Don Walford '67Walford climbed the sculpture and stood at the top as the sun shone down and 40 students and faculty members gazed up. The Object was created as part of his degree requirement; Walford said he had no idea it would become so significant.

"It's something you can be with, can get in.  Like architecture, people identify with it," he said.

Walford said that his experience at Binghamton was defined by his friends, the academic experience and soccer. "The professors were absolutely world class. They changed my life. Most of all, it's amazing to see how positive the changes here changes have been."
