ALFRED, NY, October 17, 2023 – Alfred State students, families, friends, and alumni enjoyed a wide variety of events during Homecoming Family Weekend.
“We had a ton of events from football games to talent shows to wrestling open practice,” commented Dr. Steve Mauro.” “You name it and we had it this weekend. It is amazing to have people come to campus to see the great things going on here. Thanks to all our friends, our families, and alumni for showing up this weekend and participating in the fun.”
The blue & gold dinner at the Terrace kicked off the weekend. Students enjoyed a special dinner, trivia, and were entered into a raffle sponsored by ACES. Later in the evening, students enjoyed roller skating on the multipurpose courts.
The College hosted a celebration of the MacKenzie Complex and the Hinkle Bell Tower on Friday afternoon. The event in the MacKenzie Commons allowed visitors to see the improvements and socialize while listening to the music of Ade Adu. The landmarks on campus were both built fifty years ago.
Friday night featured food trucks, a bonfire, and fireworks before the popular Alfred’s Got Talent show in the Cappadonia Auditorium. Singers, bands, and dancers took the stage to the delight of the audience.
Rain on Saturday forced the open wrestling practice indoors but the parking lots outside of Pioneer Stadium were busy with a car show, the annual Greek Chili Cook-Off, and a performance by the Alfred State Rock Band.
A successful athletic afternoon started with a conference opening victory for the football team over Anna Maria and was followed by victories by both the men’s and women’s soccer teams over La Roche. Alfred Voices sang the national anthem and the Dance Team performed at halftime of the football game.
The Homecoming barbecue was held in the large tent outside the stadium and local country artist Brianna Blankenship and her band performed in the Cappadonia Auditorium. Visitors were able to choose between a movie or checking out the Fierce Flag Football event to close out the day.
Sunday featured a family brunch in the Central Dining Hall.
