Homecoming 2006, October 20-22, will feature all the traditional events, but adds a significant new opportunity to catch up with old friends. Rather than have single class-year reunions, this year the Samford Alumni Association and Student Government Association are hosting reunion gatherings by affinity groups and student generations. Featured classes are those from 1956, 1961, 1966, 1971, 1976, 1981, 1986, 1991, 1996, 2001 and 2006, although graduates from all years are invited to participate. Other organizations and departments will have special reunion activities on the Quad. Catch up with Samford friends who didn't graduate in your class!
