Homecoming Weekend

October 12—14

The weekend starts on Friday, October 12, with soccer games and MidKnight Madness. Saturday's activities include an event celebrating more good sports—we're inaugurating the Athletics Hall of Fame, inducting our first nine members—as well as a presidential reception for the Classes of 1942, 1952, and 1962. On Sunday, October 14, we're hosting a luncheon for all classes, with designated reunion tables and a reunion hour for alums of years ending in a 2 or a 7. Our own Lidia Bastianich—celebrated chef, restaurateur, television personality, and cookbook author—will give the keynote address. The rest of the afternoon will feature art exhibitions, tours, lectures, performances by our drama, music, and creative writing students—including an original puppet show based on tales by the Brothers Grimm, The Black Cat Music Showcase, poetry readings—and more.

Call 718-997-5534 or email alumnievents@qc.cuny.edu for more information.
