Homecoming brings nearly 1,000 alumni to campus
Homecoming 2015, held Oct. 9-11, attracted nearly 1,000 alumni back to campus for events that strengthened their bonds with classmates and the University, and enabled them to share their time and talents with current students. This year’s Homecoming had the second-highest attendance total in the event’s history. The signature event of Homecoming 2015 was the grand opening of the Alumni Center in Old O’Connor Hall, a former student residence located in the University’s original Dickinson Community. Nearly 200 alumni and friends attended the grand opening ceremony, and the weekend had several events where graduates could see this new addition to the center of campus. With photos and memorabilia from significant events in the University’s history, the Alumni Center is a place where traditions and memories come to life.
At TIER Talks, presented by M&T Bank, Binghamton alumni and faculty shared the latest breakthroughs in neuroscience to a crowd of more than 350 assembled at the Watters Theater. Homecoming 2015 also included celebrations for the Mid-60s Reunion, Classes of 1985 and 1990, the 20th anniversary of the MPA program and 50 years of doctoral education at Binghamton.
