Homecoming 2015 | Return to the Mountain

Homecoming 2015


On October 9-10, 2015, more than 500 alumni and friends made their way back to the mountain for Homecoming. Dr. Halvorson kicked off the weekend in chapel with the presentation of alumni of the year awards, recognizing Todd Erickson ’87 as Alumnus of the Year; Michael Kendall ’11, Libby O’Neil ’08, and Evelyn Petcher ’10 as Young Alumni of the Year; and Christy Hummel ’94 as Alumna Volunteer of the Year. After the presentation, Joel Belz ’62 shared reflections from the early years of Covenant College. In spite of heavy rain and fog, alumni enjoyed a number of new Homecoming events, including faculty lectures, tours of Covenant’s new visual art facility, a faculty and alumni social, and the chance to enjoy dinner from local food trucks. Scroll down to see how students and alumni chronicled the weekend on Instagram and Twitter.
