April 19-21 marks PUC’s 110th Homecoming Weekend, a time when alumni across the years are invited to gather and celebrate their shared time on the hill. Homecoming Weekend often features special presentations, campus tours, and activities to spark memories of years gone by. Previous years have featured popular “PUC Talks,” a campus version of TED Talks, among other informative activities.
Homecoming 2019 promises a number of interactive and exciting festivities. After registration on Friday afternoon, alumni are invited to take part in a guided driving tour of the PUC forest. For those service-minded alumni, a presentation on PUC’s thriving missions programs will also take place on Friday evening in the Fireside Room. Visiting alumni are invited to join students for vespers in Dauphinee Chapel at 8 p.m. as well.
Following a Sabbath morning breakfast, a special feature presentation entitled, “A Mountain, a Pickax…a Health Resort? Stories from the Making of PUC,” will be offered in the church sanctuary. Alumni interested in the life and letters of Ellen G. White should stop by the Maxwell Reading Room Exhibit in the Nelson Memorial Library and peruse White’s recently uncovered letter to J.O. Corliss from May of 1882.
Sabbath afternoon features honored class parties for alumni from the years of 1959, 1964, 1969, 1979,1989, 1994, 1999, and 2009. Each class will gather at local homes and on-campus locations to share memories and stories about PUC with their fellow graduates.
Alumni with a sporty side can also participate in the men’s and women’s alumni basketball games on Saturday night, and the alumni soccer game in Pacific Auditorium at 10:30 on Sunday morning.
Throughout the weekend, a special exhibit of screenprint posters by Sherwin Goerlitz (‘69) will be on display in the lobby of Paulin Hall. The display is open whenever the building is, so stop by at any time between events to take a look.
Homecoming Weekend marks a time when alumni across the years can gather and reminisce about the special time they shared here at PUC. All interested alumni are encouraged to participate in the weekend’s events.
