Homecoming 2000

It was rhinestone tiaras and Jell-O snarfing, mariachi music and beating Bethany (again). It was a weather forecast that threatened rain then delivered wonderful fall weather. It was Homecoming 2000, and hundreds of Southwestern College alumni and friends gathered to Live It Up @SC Oct. 13 and 14.

From the Homecoming parade (where biology students constructed the winning float urging viewers to "Live It Up at the Beech") to the new events for kids, planners structured events to appeal to all ages. Special guests, the members of classes ending in "00" and "05," ate, reminisced, and heard music from their own eras. Alumni programs director Susan Lowe and event manager Nan Hinson even arranged for the Winfield trolley to carry alumni through the streets of Winfield.

Mark your calendars for next year-Homecoming 2001 will honor classes ending in "01" and "06." It's set for Oct. 19 and 20, and promises to be spectacular.
