Homecoming 2017 brings hundreds home

Alumni from across the country and around the world returned to Berea’s campus for Homecoming 2017. From the Block Party on the Square to the crowning of the Homecoming Court, alums enjoyed dancing, cheering at the basketball games, attending department receptions, connecting with classmates at class luncheons, socializing at BereaFEST, learning the latest with the president at the Town Hall forum, and—of course—finding lots of food, food, and more food! Alumni can relive their favorite moments or catch those they missed at the photo gallery for Homecoming 2017.
