Homecoming 2013

Homecoming 2013

October 11 - 13

Fresh off Pouncer's introduction to the campus this spring, the college's new mascot will be the guest of honor at a huge coming-out party Friday night at Panther Palooza III on LaGrange's downtown square. Wear your red and black or the brand-new 2013 Homecoming T-shirt as you party with Pouncer at Panther Palooza III.

There will be special attractions for the kids, a complimentary slice of Mighty Joe's pizza and ice cream or cupcakes from Cakes by Debbie's for those registering on the square. Prior to tailgating for the soccer and football games on Saturday, don't miss the 2013 Alumni Recognition Breakfast featuring President McAlexander's address; the 2013
Honorary Alumnus Awards to Dr. James F. Bruce Jr., Martha Estes, Clifford Glover and Dr. Don Jolly; 2013 Sports Hall of Fame inductees Kelly Britsky '93, M'00 and Dr. Josh DuBose '01; recognition of the 2003 LaGrange College baseball and golf teams who were United States Collegiate Athletic Association National Champions; and recognition of the Class of 1963 in its 50th reunion.

Another highlight will be Reliving the Memories at Callaway Auditorium on Saturday. Revisit your college memories and help us identify people in old LC photos – they may include some of your LC friends or even yourself! One of the day's highlights promises to be a recording session offering you the chance to share fun stories of your days on the Hill. While you are in LaGrange on Saturday afternoon, plan to stop by the Open House at the newly restored Lamar Dodd Art Center and Price Theater. Martha Estes, wife of the late of Dr. Maxie C. Estes, will be at Price during Open House. As you view Price's transformation, please drop by to welcome her and congratulate her for being named an Honorary Alumnus.

Join your friends to "roar" about your time on the Hill – we want to hear your stories about LaGrange College. Safe travels, and Theresa '81 and I will see you soon.

President, Alumni Association
