Homecoming 2011

UNCG will welcome its alumni back to campus for Homecoming 2011, which runs through this Sunday, Sept. 25.

The big day is Saturday, Sept. 24, with a full day of activities and events planned for the campus community, including three bands, a bike rodeo, the annual Children’s Festival and numerous reunions. Visit homecoming.uncg.edu for a complete schedule. All events are free and open to alumni, students and the public.

Saturday features three bands – and all of them have deep connections to UNCG and Greensboro, notes Donegan Root, associate director for development and alumni relations. “Two of them, Big Bang Boom and Brice Street Band are led by UNCG alumni, and the band Mr. Potato Head rocked the local music scene in the ‘80s and ‘90s.”

The Big Bang Boom Children’s Band performs 11 a.m.-12:30 p.m. Saturday in conjunction with the Children’s Festival sponsored by the School of Education and the North Carolina Teaching Fellows. Kids can enjoy games, inflatables, music, dancing, cheering, arts and crafts, and Liberty Mutual’s Bike Rodeo 11 a.m.-3 p.m. at Kaplan Commons on the west lawn of EUC.

Music will be provided by Brice Street Band from 1:30-3 p.m. and Mr. Potato Head from 4-6:30 p.m., both at Kaplan Commons.
