Every year, Trevecca brings in alumni from all over to celebrate Homecoming. Last year, roughly 1,600 people attended and this year they are expecting as many as 2,000 to show up.
“A lot of alumni enjoyed their time here at college and feel connected to the campus community. It’s a reminder of the past, but also a way for people to keep up with what’s going on currently at their alma mater,” said Michael Johnson, director of alumni and church engagement.
Some of the more popular events include the Town and Country Showcase on Friday night at 7 p.m. and the parade and street fair, beginning on Saturday at 11 a.m. There will also be a new event this year called a Hymn sing at 3 p.m. on Friday that will feature songs and stories many alumni will remember from their time here.
Current students are being encouraged to participate as well in the festivities this week.
“I sincerely want current students to know that homecoming is for them too. There are a lot of things going on that involve current students and we are really excited about that ,” said Johnson.
