Homecoming 2012 included the annual tailgate picnic, a 30-13 win by the football team over Holy Cross, the McDonogh Network Homecoming Social, the McKelvy House Scholars program anniversary celebration, and various parties and dinners.
Tailgate Picnic and Football Game
McKelvy Scholars Celebration
The celebration marked the 50th anniversary of the McKelvy Scholars Program and the 125th anniversary of McKelvy House. Housing 21 students each year from diverse majors and backgrounds, the program fosters intellectual discourse, personal growth, and community engagement. Current and former McKelvy Scholars took part in intellectual discussions, which are the hallmark of the program, as well as watched presentations on the history of the house and proposed renovations to the building and grounds.
McDonogh Network Social
More than 50 alumni, students, administrators, and faculty gathered at the Portlock Black Cultural Center for a late afternoon social after the Homecoming game. They were welcomed by David Reif ’68, Alumni Association president, and Kyara Gray ’11, co-chair of the McDonogh Network steering committee, which co-sponsored the third annual social with Alumni Relations and Intercultural Development.
