Homecoming Season It’s time once again to welcome the UAlbany community back to campus for Homecoming, Friday, Oct. 14 and Saturday, Oct. 15! The Alumni Association is looking forward to hosting alumni and friends at events throughout the weekend and celebrating milestone reunions for several classes and affinity groups.
This year, we’re bringing back the official Homecoming weekend kickoff event —the Welcome Reception — which will be held at the University’s ETEC building on Friday evening. For many alumni, this will be the first opportunity to check out the University’s newest state-of-the-art and environmentally sustainable facility. An official tour of ETEC will be given prior to the start of the reception, which is free and open to all. Check out the feature on ETEC in this magazine for an in-depth look that will make you want to experience it for yourself Oct. 14.
It wouldn’t be Homecoming without UAlbany Football and our annual pregame party! Join us Saturday afternoon for the Great Dane Pregame at Tom & Mary Casey Stadium starting at 1 p.m. This can’t-miss celebration grew to a new level last fall, and we are excited to welcome even more UAlbany grads back for the official UAlbany gathering before the Great Danes take on the Hampton Pirates. We’re offering our gameday package which includes football game ticket, lunch and a UAlbany-branded knit scarf that’s sure to get you noticed, at discounted rates for colleges, schools and affinity groups joining us that day. We know you’ll have a great time reconnecting and celebrating with fellow alumni at an event that is welcoming to all. Visit www.alumni.albany.edu/homecoming for more information.
I look forward to seeing you this fall!
