JACKSON, Tenn. – Feb. 9, 2001 – Union University is expecting hundreds of alumni and friends to arrive on campus the week of Feb. 12-17 for the university's annual homecoming festivities. Under this year's theme, "If My Friends Could See Me Now," more than 35 events and activities have been planned for students and alumni alike, including athletic games, department seminars and reunions, coffeehouses, talent shows, and Union's annual Bull-Dog Day Camp, an on-campus childcare service for children ages 3-10.
"This is always a fun but important time for us here at Union," said Gary Williams, executive director of Alumni Services. "Not only for renewing acquaintances, but an opportunity to share the future of Union with returning alumni."
This year, returning Unionites will get their first look at the newly created West Campus, featuring the recently built Jennings Hall, housing the departments of music, communication arts and Christian studies, and the Miller Tower, scheduled for completion in late spring.
The complete Homecoming 2001 schedule is as follows:
Tuesday, Feb. 13
Wednesday, Feb. 14
Thursday, Feb. 15
Friday, Feb. 16
Saturday, Feb. 17
