A 2013 Homecoming Reflection
Posted by Caitlin Joyce on Wednesday, February 6, 2013 at 5:16 PM PST
After a 40 year hiatus, the tradition of Homecoming returned to Seattle University with a full day of events on February 2nd.
We kicked off the day with the Hall of Fame Luncheon which hosted more than 300 people to honor outstanding SU athletes. You can read more about our honorees here.
The Alumni Relations team welcomed alumni back to campus and to our pre-game rally at KeyArena. We had a great turn out, with many new faces and lots of spirited alumni – just what we like to see!
During half-time at our Men’s basketball game, our Hall of Fame inductees were introduced and we brought back the tradition of a Homecoming Court. Students enthusiastically nominated their favorites for Homecoming Court, and at half time our 2013 Royals, Carmen Cueto & Alexander Fisher, were crowned. They weren’t dressed in traditional Homecoming formal attire, but they were decked out in SU pride.
We started off small this year, but we lit a spark that we hope ignites the flame of Homecoming and a new tradition that you’ll share with your family, and that we will share with the future generations of SU students.
We intend for Homecoming to evolve into a weekend of events that welcome our alumni back to campus to celebrate their SU experience.
We want your feedback! What would you like to see at future Homecoming events? What would get you to come back to Seattle U? Please comment on this post or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org to share your feedback.
