Our thanks to hundreds of Southern alumni and friends who participated in Homecoming
Weekend 2009. It was great to see so many of you again!
"Attendance was up considerably this year and people seemed to really enjoy the variety
of activities scheduled during the four-day reunion," said Evonne Crook, director
of alumni relations.
Some highlights included: the All-Steinway Designation celebrations, Die Meistersinger
Reunion Concert, and the alumni/staff/student talent show. Photos from the weekend
are being posted throughout the next couple of weeks to the Group Photos section on
the alumni website at www.southern.edu/alumni
. Watch for a special Homecoming Weekend photo spread to be featured in the next
issue of Columns magazine.
Plan now to attend Homecoming 2010, scheduled for Oct. 28-30. Honor classes will
include 1940, '50, '60, '65, '70, '80, '85, '90, and 2000. Highlights will include
the 40th Anniversary Celebration of McKee Library and the opening of Florida Hospital
Hall nursing building.
