Homecoming 2019 draws more than 1,000 to campus
More than 1,000 alumni, family, and friends descended on campus for two days of Homecoming festivities over the weekend. Even rain late Saturday afternoon didn’t dampen the Forester spirit or the football outcome: Lake Forest beat Knox College by a score of 28 to 3.
The excitement started with the traditional Student Pep Rally on Thursday night, where student organizations entertained the spirited crowd with dancing and other acts, and the crowning of the 2019 Homecoming Regents: Taylor Jackson ’20 and Tyree Singleton ’20.
Friday night’s traditional Homecoming Bonfire on the Middle Campus Quad did not disappoint. The Forester spirit continued Saturday morning for the Paula J. Dau ’58 Homecoming Parade. The parade stepped off from Middle Campus at 11:30 a.m. with Parade Marshal Carolyn Tuttle leading the revelers down Sheridan Road to Fan Fest on South Campus.
Students, alumni, faculty, staff, parents, and friends of the College enjoyed the Fan Fest food trucks, music, and activities for all ages in the Hixon Hall parking lot.
The football game kicked off at 2 p.m. Saturday, where Forester fans cheered as Stone Matthews ’23 ran for 125 yards and a pair of touchdowns to help the Foresters celebrate another Homecoming win. Click here for the complete game story.
