A look back at previous Homecomings…

Homecoming 2018: Purple Reigned as Wesleyan Community Celebrated Together

From honoring legends to building beds to cheering the Panthers on, the Wesleyan family gathered from 14 states, including Alaska, to celebrate The Wesleyan Way Sept. 28-30.

The weekend began with the dedication of Kingsley Korner in memory of Doug Kingsley ’61 and continued with lots of sawing, sanding and drilling as countless people built 28 beds for needy families. The beds, complete with bedclothes, toys and Bibles, were delivered to area children.

Purple reigned with many successful events, including athletic contests, Athletic Hall of Fame, Alumni Hall of Fame and Awards, a tribute to Dr. W.L. Magnuson and the Class of 1968 50th Anniversary Reunion.

Enjoy photo albums of the festivities here.
