More than 1,400 alumni and friends returned to campus for Homecoming 2019 Sept. 20-22.

This program, organized by the Alumni Association in conjunction with many campus partners, is intended to connect alumni with each other and with the University to further build tradition and pride.

Homecoming included a number of milestone events such as the 50th anniversaries of the Decker School of Nursing and the School of Management, and the beginning of Harpur College’s 70th anniversary.

For the first time, Homecoming featured a Friday night block party, at which alumni, students and friends filled Gorgeous Washington Street in downtown Binghamton for a celebration of Bing pride. The Saturday afternoon tailgate party in the Events Center parking lots was the best-attended event of the weekend.
