Ninety-degree weather didn’t stifle participation in Patrick Henry College’s homecoming celebration last week. From Wednesday night’s dodge ball tournament to the alumni vs. student football game on Saturday, students and alumni agreed that this year’s homecoming was one of the most successful the school has ever seen.
Strolling the Patrick Henry College campus during Homecoming 2012 last weekend were men in kilts, girls wearing sheets converted into makeshift togas, fellows in tri-cornered hats, and others sporting, (what?)red communist armbands. This year’s Homecoming theme was the Age of Revolutions, and while there was plenty of revelry to go around, PHC does it a bit differently than most other colleges and universities, foregoing parades and football games for more, say, historic fare.
Defying rainy, cold weather, students took a break from studies to dress up, rock out, and show some class spirit this past weekend, making PHC Homecoming 2011 what many thought was the best homecoming yet. And in the end, the senior class accrued enough points to win the yearly spirit competition.
More than 100 alumni, representing more than a quarter of all Patrick Henry College graduates, flocked to their alma mater from all over the country this past weekend for the 2010 Homecoming celebration. This special yearly tradition continues to grow through the concerted efforts of the Office of Student Life, a student-appointed Homecoming committee, the PHC Alumni Association and more. View the photo gallery below for a glimpse into this tenth-anniversary weekend filled with school spirit, alumni recognition, and glory to God for the journey on which He has led our College so far.
Sumo suits. Face paint. Circus activities. Homecoming 2009 passed this last week in a blur of class color, as Patrick Henry College alumni reunited with current students to celebrate what God has done to build their alma mater in recent years. From the Hodel Center Dedication ceremony to two winning soccer games to an alumni vs. student football game fought to a tie, this jam-packed weekend resulted in a PHC community exhausted yet encouraged.
In one of Patrick Henry College's most exciting Homecoming seasons yet, alumni, parents, and students came together for a weekend of fun and comradery October 2-4, 2008. Share some of the memories with us below.
