Homecoming Has Something for Everyone
Posted by The Seattle University Alumni Association on Wednesday, July 31, 2019 at 10:38 AM PDT
You won’t want to miss Seattle University’s Homecoming held on Veteran’s Day weekend, November 6-10, 2019. Join us as the campus comes alive with pride and memories from the past and the present.
We will be honoring veterans and remembering those who have served our nation throughout the week and weekend with a cake cutting ceremony, a Veteran’s Day lunch for veterans and the military community, the Robert Bennedsen Veteran’s Day 5K and a tribute at the Homecoming basketball game that night.
For the first time, reunions join Homecoming to make it the biggest celebration yet. We’re celebrating:
- Class of 1969 50th Reunion
- Sullivan Scholars 30th Anniversary
- Search Retreat 50th Anniversary
- HiYu Coulee 80th Anniversary
Interested in learning opportunities? We’ve got you covered with a panel discussion on "Corporate Solutions to Social Problems" on Wednesday morning and an evening community lecture on Thursday. Stay tuned for speaker announcements!
Join us Thursday for our Homecoming Umbrella Parade where we’ll gather alumni to walk together to show the students that Seattle U is for a lifetime.
We live our mission on Saturday with our first global Homecoming Day of Service. You can register now for any of the 21 service sites in the Puget Sound region. Not in the area but would still like to organize a service project for alumni in your area? Contact Stephanie Jamieson at firstname.lastname@example.org. We’ll let you know as service sites in other regions are confirmed.
Saturday night we celebrate our Seattle U pride with the biggest, most exciting Homecoming rally we’ve ever had. We’re combining our Red Fest celebration with the rally so we’ll have activities for everyone as well as live entertainment. We’re still firming up details, but let’s just say we are hoping to see 1,000 SU alumni, students, faculty, staff, families and friends gearing up for the Homecoming basketball game against Eastern Washington University at our very own Redhawk Center.
We’ll wrap up the weekend with alumni mass at the Chapel of St. Ignatius.
This is a weekend you don’t want to miss. Check out the full schedule on our Homecoming website and mark your calendars!
