For the week of Sept. 19, 2006

Homecoming 2005

It was a gorgeous week on campus for the Homecoming 2005 celebration. With temperatures in the upper 70s and plenty of sunshine, everyone was in good spirits. To those of you who thought homecoming was early this year, yes, that is true, but the date is determined by the football schedule, more than anything. We're working on getting next year's date to you as soon as possible.
Did you visit Marquette this past weekend? We'd be interested in your thoughts on the homecoming schedule, events, activities, and any stories you might want to share about your weekend catching up with old friends.
Here's a pictorial look at Homecoming 2005.
