Citadel Homecoming 2001

November 7, 2001


Welcome home, Alumni!

We have a big weekend planned and hope that you will enjoy yourselves as you reunite with your classmates and take part in the festivities. If you haven't yet visited the new John Monroe J. Holliday Alumni Center, we encourage you to do so. The new alumni center, just across the street from Hagood Stadium, is the hub of all that is going on this weekend. Please make yourself at home and visit the alumni center's gift shop while you're here.

Following is a schedule of all that is going on. Please note the change in the Gospel Choir's performance. It is now at 7:00 p.m. in Summerall Chapel.

We're happy to have you back home again.

Beat VMI!
