Carolyn Ridley, director of Alumni Relations, looks forward to welcoming alumni and families back to campus.

“We have great events lined up,” she said. “One of the highlights is sure to be the premiere of the sitcom which was filmed in the fall of 2012. We also have the first game being played on the new baseball field, and the Zoo celebrating more than 40 years as a hall.”

Events aren’t just for alumni, though — high-school siblings of current students have the opportunity experience campus life with “Sibling Invasion,” spending the night in the dorms on Thursday and attending classes on Friday. Included below are some of the highlights of the weekend. For the latest updates, visit http://www.asbury.edu/alumni/events-gatherings/homecoming.
