Anderson University welcomes alumni, family and friends back this weekend for fun and fellowship during Homecoming 2004, titled "A World of Memories," October 15-16. "We're looking forward to hosting alumni, family and friends both locally and from far distances for this year's homecoming," said Kim Wolfe, director of Alumni Programs. "We are very excited about our theme and we look forward to providing opportunities for alums and friends to connect with one another in both large and small settings."

Along with the annual homecoming football game and introduction of the homecoming king, queen and court, there will also be a 5k run, RavenFest 3, and a theatrical production entitled "Guys and Dolls." A full schedule can be accessed at www.anderson.edu/alumni/homecoming.

"The people that come back every year are here to see their friends, professors and people they have built relationship with and those that have mentored them," said Wolfe. She also pointed out that many high school students and their parents will tour the campus while making decisions regarding college in the future.

According to Wolfe, there will also be the traditional elements to Homecoming 2004 such as evening luminaries on Friday night and the alumni/student fair on University Boulevard. Wolfe also indicated that there will be many more reunions among different departments this year.
