Coming Home A New Meaning of Homecoming
As we anticipate an ambitious Homecoming Weekend and the excitement of families visiting and the swirl of activity on campus, I couldn’t help thinking about our growing JU Family. Our beautiful riverfront campus has served students as their educational and cultural ‘home away from home’ since October 2, 1950, and today more than 30,000 JU alumni are excelling around the world.
I’m one of those thousands, and when I meet up with fellow alumni, we inevitably discuss how proud we are of this University, how much it has meant to us. But since becoming President of this great University, I’ve witnessed more than our graduates feeling that distinct brand of JU pride. Now, I have the privilege of seeing how JU is proud to welcome those alumni coming home, investing their careers here to make us better.
