Georgetown College Homecoming is the weekend of October 11-12. Many activities and events are planned, and alumni are encouraged to return to campus to renew acquaintances.
In preparation for and observance of this year’s Homecoming, the Georgetown College Fine Art Galleries are presenting a special exhibit entitled “90 Years & Counting: Homecoming through the Ages.” It is on display now until October 17 in the Cochenour Gallery of the Ensor Learning Resource Center (LRC) and is open to the public during regular LRC hours.
The exhibit was organized by students in Dr. Juilee Decker’s Fall 2013 Curatorial Studies course. It features an accurate history of Homecoming since its introduction in 1923, the evolution of the student talent production Songfest, a tribute to Coach L.E. “Brad” Jones; who embodies the “Spirit of Homecoming,” and many artifacts that date back to the youngest days of the college.
“90 Years & Counting: Homecoming through the Ages” offers a glimpse into the past and present. Alumni and friends are invited to share memories during a reception and discussion on Friday, beginning at 2:15 p.m. in the Cochenour Gallery and meet the students who researched and created the exhibit.
