Homecoming. Just the name evokes thoughts
of younger days… carefree antics, challenging accomplishments,
and close bonds with family and friends.
This year, we hope you will make plans to journey back to Southwestern
for a three-day, event-filled Homecoming weekend of good times. Every
year, alumni who have not been back to campus for several years comment
that they are so glad they came and they are sorry they waited to
do so. We can't make you come. We can tend the stones and mortar
of old Christy Hall, we can manicure the green tree-shaded slopes
of the hill, and we can plan lots of fun, food, and activities… but
only you can get yourself (and other classmates) here.
Check out the Homecoming schedule in this issue, get excited, and call
some old classmates. Make plans to attend Homecoming 2004, then call
for motel reservations (space goes quickly) and RSVP to let us know
you are coming. If you have any questions, you can reach me at (800)
846-1543 ext. 6334, or e-mail email@example.com, or mail to 100 College
St., Winfield, KS 67156-2499. We'll be looking forward to seeing
YOU in October!

Coming Your Way...
Our new SC alumni directory is underway.
In September expect a questionnaire from Bernard C.
Harris Publishing Co., which will ask for information to be used
in the new directory. Your prompt assistance in filling out and returning
the questionnaire to them will be greatly appreciated.
The updated information the Harris company compiles
will be used to bring our alumni data up to date as well.
Then if you wish (but you are not under any obligation),
copies of the directory will be available for purchase in either
book or CD format.
Is your 20-year-old Southwestern College T-shirt beginning
to show its age? Did you break your Jinx coffee mug? Replacements
are only a computer click away.
The Book Cave's eFollett Web site is a great place
to purchase clothing, mugs, license plates, and other Southwestern
Go to www.sckans.edu/campus, and click on the Book
Cave link at the top of the pace for access.
Out our Great SC Volunteers!
Because space limitations do not permit room for volunteer
acknowledgements in The Southwesterner, a complete list
of volunteers for the last fiscal year can be found in the upcoming
online SC Honor Roll. Names of Builder volunteers are accessible
throughout the year on the alumni Web page at www.sckans.edu.
