alumniAnticipation Builds For Alumni Homecoming Weekend (October 28-31, 2010)
by Evonne Crook and Daniel Wahlen

Every year Homecoming Weekend at Southern is an event that brings back nostalgia and happiness, but more importantly it is an opportunity to be brought back up to date with your alma mater. The theme for the weekend is "Pillars of Progress."

This year coincides with several important events that clearly mark progress for the university. The beautiful new Florida Hospital Hall will be opening this school year, providing a larger home for the ever growing School of Nursing. Also, it is the 40th Anniversary of the McKee Library and the 60th Anniversary of the SMC accreditation.

There are many exciting activities planned
and all graduates are invited and encouraged to attend, whether or not you are an honor class member this year.

Thank you to those who participated in the 2010 Dave Cress Memorial Golf Tournament. With your help, we raised approximately $10,000 which will be added to the Dave Cress Memorial Endowed Scholarship.

The theme at the tournament was, "It Is All About the Students," and we cannot thank enough those who played and sponsored for their support.

If you were unable to play this year, we hope you will be able to join us next year. An announcement will be made as soon as we have a confirmed date.
