Alumni were welcomed back to Liberty University Oct. 17-19 to celebrate Homecoming Weekend 2013 and see the many changes around campus. Many alumni arrived with young children, who ran behind them on the same sidewalks their parents used so many years ago.
The Alumni Relations Office and Student Activities offered many different events for alumni and current students. These events included a carnival, which took place Oct. 18-19 and featured a dinner on the back lawn of the Hancock Welcome Center, carnival rides, games and refreshments. A bonfire at the previous site of Worthington Stadium followed the carnival Friday night.
Events offered Saturday included the Deep Hollow Half Marathon and 5k at Camp Hydaway and the Homecoming Parade down University Boulevard. The carnival from the previous night continued Saturday afternoon.
Alumni also attended tailgating parties until the football game against the Coastal Carolina University Chanticleers began. The carnival resumed after the game to close the evening.
