Description

Hello Alumni,

Homecoming 2019 will be the biggest and best ever. We have events spanning over three days (February 22-24th), with many opportunities to participate. The fun begins on Friday evening at 6 pm at Sparrow Stadium where FMU baseball is playing Lander. We will host a Hall of Fame and Alumni Reception to join together alumni with past and future inductees to the FMU Hall of Fame while enjoying food, drinks and a great baseball game from the Trustees' Box and patio. Downtown on Friday evening we will have a Downtown Homecoming Eve Alumni Passport and Party. Purchase your Passports here online and then pick them up at Alumni HQ in the courtyard of Victor's Downtown and enjoy the restaurants participating where your Passports will entitle you to deep discounts on food an drinks. After dinner, you will return to Alumni HQ at Victor's where we will have cocktails, appetizers and a live DJ to party under the stars until late in the evening*. *(May move to an adjacent location) If the weather is not perfect, we will have the banquet hall at ready to go.

Saturday morning you will wake up to begin your Homecoming 2019 Tailgate preparations and come to the grounds behind the university center to join thousands of fellow alumni and friends. Don't have time to cook or prepare? No problem, this year we have invited select food trucks and vendors that you purchase your favorite foods on-site. We will also have special craft brewery vendors on site for you to enjoy your favorite brews. The participation in tailgating is free; however, if you would like a space, there is a small fee but be sure to make your reservation here online today. Space is limited. The tailgating grounds open at 11 am for vehicle traffic and close to vehicle traffic at 130-5pm. During that time, there will be assistance in transporting your tailgating supplies to your space in university utility vehicles. Our number one priority for the weekend and especially tailgating is that everyone is safe and respectful to others. *For details regarding the tailgating regulations be sure to read the description in the ticketing area. In addition to food vendors, we will also have college and greek life vendors for you to purchase your favorite items from while you are here. As a special treat, we are having our very first official homecoming t-shirt available for pre-order here online or there will be a limited quantity on site that day. Be sure to order yours now to ensure you get the sizes that you want.

What would a weekend be if it did not end well? We are going to send you off in style with a Jazz Champagne Brunch at Victor's Downtown. Come and bring your friends to hear the easy listening jazz band perform as you share your memories of the weekend over a special brunch buffet and mimosa toasts. If you purchase our all-inclusive Patriot Pass, we will have you covered from 6 pm on Friday until 2 pm on Sunday. We have package discounts set up with for those attending multiple events so be sure to read the description for each event. We are also offering two additional specials. The first is you can buy an official Homecoming 2019 T-shirt, even if you cannot attend this year. The second is we are offering 1/3 off our regular Annual Alumni Membership to anyone that purchase one or more items or event tickets here before the event. We had thousands attend last year's tailgating and with your help will increase that this year. If you have any questions or confusion about the events or weekend activities for alumni, you can email me at alumni@fmarion.edu.

See you soon,

D. Lee Daugherty '89, Director of Alumni Affairs
