This year’s Homecoming festivities were filled with Bison cheer, many fun activities, and class reunions. Kicking off Homecoming was the pep rally on October 20, where current students, alumni, and staff gathered together at Field House to rally for the University and to make announcements relevant to the weekend. Saturday morning included various class reunions, followed by class parades at noon before the football game. Hotchkiss Field and Lincoln Circle were crowded, with plenty of organizations, non-profits, and other booths advertising and offering food. Despite Husson defeating Gallaudet 48-21, Bison cheerleaders ensured the audience kept their spirits up. Homecoming was truly a time for the community to “come home” for the weekend.
