This Year the Rose-Hulman website will be covering
Homecoming like never before.
- Leading up to that eventful weekend, we will feature articles
on the Homecoming Award-winners, articles on the new facilities
around campus, and photo albums from Homecomings gone by -
including favorite images sent in by our Facebook Friends.
- During the weekend - that's September 23-4 - our roving cameras
and videographers will be capturing candid footage of the hijinx,
the nostalgia and the pomp.
- As we unveil our new construction and introduce three new Vice
Presidents, 2011 will be a unique Homecoming. But that doesn't mean
we will leave out any of the longtime, favorite traditions:
The Bonfire Tradition
An old fashioned pep rally gets you ready for the big game on
Saturday. You will witness the crowning of this year's Homecoming
queen. And you will share in the momentous and memorable Homecoming

several class reunions, Homecoming will let you to hook up with
classmates and their families, and recall the "good old days" on

class reunion while you're "home" at Rose.
