Homecoming 2010

This year, Homecoming ("Forever Crimson") will be as "colorful" as ever, or moreso, offering a week's worth of events and activities designed to please the whole family. From community service opportunities, an emeritus reunion, Songfest and pep rally, to a golf scramble, 5K Run, a pregame tailgate and football game, the week's events will not only delight and entertain but will also give back to the community AND raise funds for student scholarships.
