It's Utica College "Homecoming Alumni & Family Weekend 2014" this weekend at the Burrstone Road campus. As a UC alumnus, I'm looking forward to reconnecting with classmates, friends and faculty members. Welcome back to the Utica area to those of you are returning to the homecoming this weekend.

My favorite part of homecoming weekend is attending the UC Pioneers Football (4-2) game, and the tailgate and post-game parties that go with it. There's nothing like having a cold UC or two at UC!  It should be a great game this Saturday, when Utica College hosts St. John Fisher College (4-1) at 1:00 p.m. at Charles A. Gaetano Stadium.

There are a number of family oriented activities scheduled throughout the weekend, for UC alums, current undergrads and their families. They always have a few events that reunite former classmates with their fellow majors, fraternities and sororities. As a Public Relations graduate, I might hook up with a few friends on Saturday after the game at the "PR/J Reception/Mixer for PR/J Alumni, Families, and Friends".

It's a reunion and a great chance to go back on campus at my Alma Mater. Every fall when I return to UC for homecoming, I'm amazed at how the college has grown.
