James Smith, Vice President of University Relations at MVNU, tells us about MVNU Homecoming 11/11 and 11/12.
James talks about how he is connected to Homecoming this year. It is a time for alumni, current students and the community to connect.
He gives us schedule highlights for Friday. The day will start with the President’s Prayer Breakfast, departmental alumni presentations, alumni-led homecoming chapel, and recognizing the Golden Grads- the Class of 1972.
Friday also includes basketball games and an alumni celebration in Foster Hall. The celebration of the Singletary Legacy, to honor Jim Singletary’s service at MVNU, will happen at 6pm in the President’s Dining Room as well.
On Friday, the 1972 Athletics Alumni will be honored at halftime at the Women’s basketball game. Then, between the women’s and men’s game, the 2022 Homecoming Court will be announced with the crowning of the Queen and (for the first time ever at MVNU) King. At halftime of the Men’s game, three athletes will be inducted into the Cougar Wall of Fame.
On Saturday, there will be class reunions, a Science and Engineering Alumni Breakfast, Donuts with Dr Spaulding, a 3-on-3 Basketball tournament, affinity reunions and class gatherings, tours of MVNU’s downtown buildings at CH4 stadium, an art gallery exhibit with former Art Professor Jim Hendrickx, the Music Department’s Homecoming Concert, and the MVNU fall play “The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes.”
