The McKendrean Magazine for McKendree Univeristy - Winter 2023

Homecoming Weekend Rewind

Whether they were on the hunt to satisfy their sweet tooth at McKendree’s very first Trunk-or-Treat or marveling at vampires as they performed fang-tastic feats of finesse, Bearcats of every age found no shortage of spirited surprises during the 2022 Homecoming and Alumni Reunion Weekend.

It was a blink-and-you’ll-miss-it kind of weekend! A non-stop parade of familiar faces, fantastic food and frightful festivities awaited any McKendrean brave enough to visit campus on Halloween weekend. But let’s be honest – not a great deal of bravery was required. The weather was perfect, and a fleet of food trucks fed the fun while the McKendree football team thrilled fans in the stands.

McKendree University also welcomed home the class of 1972 for a Golden Anniversary Reunion. Fond memories were shared, and friendships new and old were celebrated long into the night. One thing is certain – it’ll be a tough act to follow next year!
