2013 Homecoming, Family Weekend Draws Nearly 2,500
Saint Louis University's 2013 Homecoming and Family Weekend was held Sept. 27-29. A full slate of events drew nearly 2,500 registrants.
This year's celebration included the third annual "Taste of Midtown," a food sampling event held at SLU's own Hotel Ignacio; the always-popular golf cart parade; with this year's theme "Meet Me in St. Louis;" and celebrations of SLU's Golden Billikens, members of the class of 1963 and earlier.
During the weekend, SLU also held dedication ceremonies for its $8.8 million Center for Global Citizenship and its $32 million Joe and Loretta Scott Hall, the new home of the School of Law in downtown St. Louis.
The weekend of festivities was capped off with a win by the men's soccer team against Central Arkansas and a spectacular fireworks display during halftime of the match.
