Lander University will roll out the red carpet to welcome alumni for its annual Homecoming Weekend celebration, Friday and Saturday, March 1-2.
The get-together will begin with a golf outing at Greenwood Country Club on Friday and continue with a number of social events reuniting alumni, many of whom have not seen each other since graduation.
Friday will also feature the annual soapbox race, a cookout, bonfire and concert by Orange Magnolia. The week leading up to Homecoming Weekend will be filled with a number of events for current Lander students, including a king and queen contest, field day and more.
On Saturday morning, alumni are invited to bring their children to a family fun zone in the Johnston Commons for face painting, carnival games and refreshments.
There will be plenty of sports action to choose from on Saturday. The Lander Bearcats men’s baseball team will host North Georgia in a doubleheader at Dolny Stadium in the Jeff May Complex. The women’s and men’s basketball teams will take on the women’s and men’s teams from Francis Marion University that same afternoon.
