Homecoming 2017: A celebration you won't want to miss
By Steve Seepersaud
"If you haven't been to campus in some time, then you really owe it to yourself to come for Homecoming!" said Merrit Hartblay '76, MSW '16. "What a great way to get nostalgic and reminisce about the good old days! Last year was my 40th class reunion, and I had the chance to meet up with my old RA buddies from Newing who came from all over the country. It's all about alumni keeping the spirit alive and showing the underclassmen what a special place Binghamton is."
Come back to campus Friday-Sunday, Oct. 6-8, and experience the fun of Homecoming! Registration is open; visit the Homecoming website today to see the schedule of events and sign up.
Reach out to friends and encourage them to join you at Homecoming. That's the best way to ensure a great Homecoming experience.
These traditional events will be back: Saturday tailgate party (our 10th), men's soccer under the lights, a 5K run/walk, and TIER Talks® presented by M&T Bank (this year's topic is Virtual and Augmented Reality: The Future is Now!).
For the second year, we'll offer Bing Brews and Bands. It's a great way to cap off a full Saturday of fun. Head downtown, hop between establishments and enjoy craft beers while listening to the area's coolest bands. You've always loved hanging out downtown; the scene is even more happening today!
Hinman College will celebrate its 50th anniversary during Homecoming 2017, and we'll have the 5th anniversary celebration of Sigma Alpha Epsilon Pi. Fireworks will cap off Saturday's on-campus activities.
All alumni and their families are welcome at Homecoming. A number of area hotels are offering special rates during the weekend. Visit the Homecoming website for more information on this and to register.
Homecoming is bigger and better every year. If you've been here before, you know it's fun. If not, make 2017 the year you enjoy your first Homecoming.
