Alumni Come from Near and Far for Homecoming 2017


Under sunny skies and summer-like weather, a multitude of alumni, family, and friends returned to campus to celebrate, reminisce, and cheer on their Golden Bear teams at Homecoming on September 23.

With the themes of “Bleed Blue & Gold” and “Fear the Bear,” Homecoming featured great food, the ROTC pull-up challenge, children’s activities, and several athletics contests, including a thrilling last-minute, come-from-behind football victory over Husson University, 21-14. The men’s and women’s soccer teams were also victorious against Salve Regina University.

Homecoming Weekend also included a comedy performance by Ron Funches and various reunions, including the U&ME/MGA Reunion Dinner Dance, men’s soccer, women’s lacrosse, women’s volleyball, women’s basketball, softball, and the Women’s Athletic Alumnae Council Wine & Beer Tasting.

Events on Friday featured the Golden Grads Luncheon and the Downes Athletic Hall of Fame induction.
