REMEMBERING OUR CENTENARY FAMILY

We invite alumni to create space during Homecoming activities to remember and honor classmates, former faculty, and friends that have passed away during the last year. Votive candles will be available to light in remembrance of those we have lost. We encourage that this time to be a place of reflection, silence and/or the spiritual practice of prayer. The chapel will be open Friday, October 28 from 8a-8p; Saturday, October 29 from 9a-6p; and Sunday, October 30 from 12p-4p.

America’s Singing Ambassadors features material from the Centenary Archives documenting the 75-year history of the college’s choir. This exhibit is accessible online as well as on display in the Whited Room lobby of Bynum Commons from September through December 2016.
