Don't miss the chance to see friends at Homecoming

By Steve Seepersaud

Homecoming 2014 Homecoming weekend has a cool factor and we're not just talking about the weather. Imagine how much fun it would be to catch up with friends whom you haven't seen for years — friends who made college such a special time in your life.

Join us on campus Friday-Sunday, Oct. 17-19, and relive the fun you had at Binghamton while making new memories.

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 and opportunities to share professional experiences with current students.

Homecoming will also include the following milestone celebrations and reunions.

  • 60th Anniversary of the Class of 1954: The Founders' Club luncheon on Saturday afternoon will honor your class. In addition, there will be an anniversary celebration dinner that evening.
  • 50th Anniversary of the Class of 1964: You loved Sharkey's while you were a student. Would there be any more appropriate place for a golden anniversary dinner?
  • 10th Anniversary Reunion for the Class of 2004:  An apple picking excursion will kick off your reunion activities and provide an opportunity for you and your family to enjoy the natural beauty of Binghamton in the fall.
  • Zero-Year Reunion for the Class of 2014: Although you just graduated, we know you miss your friends and would enjoy coming back to the places you enjoyed during your time as a student.
  • 25th Anniversary for Pi Lambda Phi: The anniversary reunion includes a Friday night meet-up and a special Pi Lam tailgate on Saturday.
  • EOP 45th Anniversary: Celebrate the program's milestone by joining alumni and staff at a Saturday luncheon.
  • Pep Band 10th Anniversary: You can bring your instrument and play along with the current band, or just hang out with friends at Tailgate and the soccer game.

See the full schedule of events at the Homecoming website and register by Friday, Oct. 10. If you have any questions, contact the Alumni Relations office at 607-777-2424 or alumni@binghamton.edu.
