Alumni: Come home to Southeastern for Homecoming 2016

HAMMOND---Southeastern is celebrating Homecoming 2016 with a week of spirited activities and time-honored traditions on October 17 to 22.

The university community is invited to participate in this week of festivities designed to welcome alumni and friends to campus, including tailgating, reunions, a parade and football action in Strawberry Stadium.

The Homecoming Week schedule will encompass a ton of fun events, celebrating the 2016 theme of “Roomie’s Road Trip.” Favorites like Gumbo YaYa and the annual bonfire for students, Lyceum Lights luncheon for faculty, campus and community decorating contests, as well as reunions for Southeastern alumni, are just a few of the festivities.

On Friday, Oct. 21, the Alumni Association will host the Alumni Awards Evening to recognize 2016 Alumnus of the Year Billy Kennedy, Texas A&M University basketball coach, and the 2016 Young Alumni of the Year Zac and Cari Caramonta, owners and operators of the Hammond-based craft beer brewery Gnarly Barley.

Homecoming culminates on Saturday, Oct. 22 with activities and tailgating for the whole family in Friendship Circle, a parade at noon, and the Homecoming football game at 4 p.m. in Strawberry Stadium. The big reveal happens at halftime, when the 2016 Homecoming Queen and King will be crowned.

Immediately after the game, the Greater Hammond Chamber of Commerce will host “Railroad Roar,” an evening of dining and entertainment by participating downtown businesses.

The 2016 alumni activities are sponsored by Tangipahoa Tourism, and student activities are sponsored by the Student Government Association.
