There will be plenty of opportunities to enjoy fellowship and food. Some of the traditional Homecoming activities occurring this year include: Music Fest, children’s activities by the science building, fun run/walk, the musical and many sporting events. An annual favorite, the Dutch Lunch, featuring a delicious German buffet, will be available in the gymnasium.
