A good time to come home
Reunion/Homecoming 2008 on Oct. 17-19 is coming up fast, and organizer Chris Betcher (Alumni and Parent Relations) promises this year’s events and activities will be better than ever.
New this year is the chance to study with your favorite professor once more. Returning alumni will be able to attend classes with current students on the Friday of Reunion Weekend.
Later, catch up with old friends, classmates and favorite faculty members at an evening reception, open to all alumni. New college president Tom Kunkel is looking forward to attending, so seize the opportunity to meet him for the first time. This year, Betcher says, all class years will congregate on campus Friday night, so expect a great atmosphere.
Start Saturday off by joining in the Parade Party on the lawn of the Alumni House. Bring your family and friends. This year’s Homecoming theme is TV reruns, and the parade will feature St. Norbert student organizations — and some fun additions — starring in your old favorites. Watch for the T-shirt toss — you might even score an addition to your Green Knight wardrobe.
At 11 a.m., plan to attend a special all-alumni tailgate event hosted by the Third Thursday Retired Alumni Club. The big game — the Green Knights vs. Carroll College Pioneers — kicks off at 1 p.m.
