Every once in a while, I will visit my high school during its annual homecoming football game. A flood of memories always surrounds me as I remember classes, teachers and experiences that I had there. Homecoming at Harding for me is a little different because I graduated and couldn’t stay away. I don’t know what it’s like to leave this place and come back to visit. But Homecoming is still my favorite time of the school year because of how this place connects us all together.
In addition to cheering on the Bison football team in their 2 p.m. game against Southeastern Oklahoma State University on Saturday and enjoying a performance of “Shrek The Musical,” visitors on campus and current students can choose from a wide range of activities to relive favorite college memories and create new ones with friends. Student groups like Pied Pipers, Good News Singers and Belles & Beaux will be performing, and there are a number of reunions scheduled for Saturday. For an updated schedule, visit http://www.harding.edu/homecoming/schedule.
We would love to see your homecoming photos and hear about some of your own memories and experiences, so please share them with us throughout the weekend using #HardingHomecoming. It’s a special time for Harding as we are in the midst of our 90th year, and we hope to see you on campus to join in the celebration.
