Binghamton University will hold its annual Homecoming weekend celebration from Friday through Saturday, Sept. 23-25. Sponsored by the Binghamton University Alumni Association, Homecoming 2016 will be a celebration of Binghamton pride for alumni, students, faculty, staff and friends of the University. More than 1,000 alumni are expected to return to campus for a wide variety of events that will reconnect them to the University and to each other.
Signature events of Homecoming 2016 include the following:
• The largest event of the weekend will be the tailgate party, taking place from 3-6 p.m. Saturday, Sept. 24, in the Events Center Parking lot. This will lead into the men’s soccer game against the Buffalo Bulls at 6 p.m., in the Bearcats Sports Complex. The Homecoming soccer game sells out every year.
• Bill T. Jones, a Binghamton University alumnus and internationally acclaimed dancer, will bring his dance company to the Anderson Center for its first-ever performance in Binghamton, at 7:30 p.m. Saturday, Sept. 24.
• Three Binghamton University alumni – all of whom are political experts frequently quoted by national news media – will discuss the future of the American political system during the speaker event TIER Talks (Talks that Inspire, Educate and Resonate), presented by M&T Bank, at 1:30 p.m. Saturday, Sept. 24, at the Watters Theater.
• The University will dedicate the Zurack Family High-Technology Collaboration Center and the Zurack Family Group Study Room, both part of the Center for Learning and Teaching, at 4 p.m. Friday, Sept. 23. Both rooms have state-of-the-art classroom and communication technology. Mark Zurack ’78 is a member of the Binghamton University Foundation Board of Directors, and the Zurack Family Foundation has supported several major initiatives in the School of Management.
