Homecoming 2019

Scroll down for details!

We are excited for another great weekend filled with great connections, important relationships, and inspiring stories! We continue taking feedback from alumni who have returned for Homecoming many times and those who have never made it yet. We’re excited to incorporate some ideas based on that feedback this year. Here are a few opportunities to make you aware of as you make your travel and registration plans:

*Registrations submitted before September 1, 2019 can receive a Homecoming 2019 T-Shirt at a discounted rate of $10 (regularly $15 after September 1 and on-site)!

**Registrations for the Homecoming Banquet before September 1, 2019 will be $30 (regularly $35 after September 1 and on-site)

If you have trouble with this form or have questions, please call our office at 417.865.2815 ext. 7333.
