Lindenwood University-Belleville is hosting Parents, Family, and Alumni Reunion Weekend October 21-23 in tandem with its 2016 Homecoming events.
“We’ve amped up Parents, Family, and Alumni Reunion Weekend to include more alumni engagement and stronger community relations initiatives, and we are looking forward to celebrating with our alumni, community members, our students, and their parents and families,” said Jennifer Ferguson, director of alumni relations and special events. “We have a little something for everyone at this year’s celebration, including our inaugural homecoming parade.”
The parade is scheduled for Saturday, Oct. 22, at 10 a.m. It will begin at St. Mary Catholic Church, 1706 W. Main St., Belleville, and will proceed to the university’s campus at 2600 W. Main St., Belleville.
Following the parade, the university will host a Homecoming picnic, Lynx Fair, and several athletic events, including the Homecoming football game against St. Francis University, which begins at 1 p.m.
Ferguson said that other new events are planned for the weekend, including the Alumni Welcome Party, hosted at Pitcher’s Pub in Belleville, and a Farewell Brunch with the president for all weekend guests.
