The campus was alive with students, alumni and families during Hood’s first Homecoming/Fall Family Weekend event Oct. 4-6. It was great to see so many alumni and families on campus and the weather couldn’t have been better.
There were a ton of activities—it was so hard to choose! Friday opened with campus tours, and a selection of mini-classes led by Professors Flora, Latkovski, Gurzick and Farrell. A happy hour, dinner and skit/comedy show followed, and later that night students kicked back with a taco bar, DJ and other activities.
Saturday events included College volunteer and update sessions, a homecoming festival and tailgate on the quad, men’s and women’s soccer games, an evening performance showcase and dessert reception. Many families and alumni headed to downtown Frederick for First Saturday, a monthly event where stores stay open late, bands showcase their talents and kid- and family-friendly activities—including a free photo booth hosted by Hood College—kept everyone entertained!
For anyone eager to wake up early, the cross country team hosted a 5K run Sunday morning, followed by a brunch in Coblentz Dining Hall.
Whew! Quite a lot to pack into one weekend, but everyone enjoyed themselves. We’re already starting to plan for next year!
