From Friday, October 10 to Sunday, October 12, 2014 Chapman University alumni and family came together to celebrate Homecoming Weekend. This included the Alumni Legacy Wall Tribute event, the President's Circle dinner, the 5th annual Chili Cook-Off and Tailgate, Homecoming Football Game, Welcome Home – a tour of the Chapman residential and dorm life for alumni, Chapman Family Lunch and Lawn Games, Faculty Master Classes, the President’s Welcome and University Update, Chapman University Toyota of Orange 5K Run/Walk, and the Big Band Bubbly Brunch. Thank you to all who attended!
"I really enjoyed spending Saturday, October 11, on campus for a historic Homecoming Weekend. I was there from 9:30 a.m. to 10:30 p.m. The alumni department did an excellent job this year inviting, coordinating, and hosting the numerous different events. I personally attended and enjoyed the Alumni Legacy Wall dedication ceremony, the Lunch and Lawn Games, the Argyros Business School alumni chat with the Dean Reggie Gilyard, the Chili Cook Off (including delicious coffee from Aussie Bean and craft beer from Valiant Brewing), the Viewing Party for the football game, and stopped by the upper deck press box in the stadium to see some old teammates; while the Panthers handily defeated the Sagehens. My hat is off to everyone responsible for making such a great day possible and encourage future alumni to attend homecoming at every opportunity. The connections we make with old teammates, students, and friends should remind us all to Think Chapman First."
"I went to the President's Circle dinner and the football game viewing party over Homecoming Weekend. It was great to see the campus so full of life. Hats off to the staff and volunteers, everyone was very welcoming and friendly. My only suggestion for next year is that we find a more challenging football team to play against."
"Homecoming weekend is the ultimate Chapman University Party! While the campus continues to evolve, the one thing that will never change is Chapman's incredible community spirit. As a member of Chapman50, it's especially gratifying to connect with other members throughout the weekend and remember the significant role Chapman has played in our lives."
