Possible Changes for Future Homecomings

If you are looking for Homecoming and Reunions 2003 you have come to the right place, but you are just a bit late. The event was from April 11-13, 2003.
The Homecoming Committee has expressed concern over the past few years about the dwindling number of attendees each time, while the work they do remains the same.
We have proposed that CLASS REUNIONS as such be held every other April, and then have class reunions by decades rather than individual years. As such, the next full reunion would be in April 2005.
ALUMNI HOMECOMING could be a single event twice a year: For example, connected with LIGHT THE WAY in November each, and FIESTA in the spring. The Sister Charles Frank Lecture in Nursing could still be and annual event, tied to REUNION every other year.
And, we would still honor the SILVER and GOLDEN anniversary classes, every year, at the December and May commencement ceremonies. Everyone seems to like this new tradition a whole bunch. Reunions are expensive to organize and publicize, and at present they are not cost effective for the alumni Operation. A celebration every other year may generate interst and registrations.
What do you think? Let us hear from you!
