More than 300 alumni, parents, students and friends joined the Homecoming 2010 festivities during Homecoming Week, Oct. 22-31.

Events included the Homecoming Kickoff Party, Alumni Night at Stonewerks at the Quarry and Dr. Agnese’s traditional wine and cheese social. New for 2010 was the Art and Music Festival on Dubuis Lawn hosted by the Alumni Association and the UIW Honors Program.

The Class of 1985 came home to celebrate their 25-year reunion, and the Class of 1960 was honored at the Crimson & Gold Society Ceremony for their 50-year reunion.

The Homecoming football game drew more than 3,000 Cardinal fans who also enjoyed the crowning of the 2010 Homecoming King, Walter Wong, and Queen, Christine Clark. Ellen and the Degenerates, led by David Garza ’10, performed at the pre-game tailgate. The UIW Alumni Red Zone sold Homecoming t-shirts and held a family barbecue before the game.

One of the most popular events for young alumni, the Lion and Rose Double Decker Party Bus night, was such a huge hit at Homecoming that another Double Decker Bus night is being planned for Friday, May 13. Keep an eye on the Cardinal’s Nest website at for details.
