TBT: Tradition Never Graduates- MC Homecoming 2013

Hey folks, it’s Elizabeth, here to tell you…

It’s Homecoming Week at MC!!!

Alumni from years past are arriving on campus as we speak to reunite with their college friends from 20, 30, even 50 years ago! Come Saturday, the Quad will be abuzz with students, alumni and parents tailgating with old friends, waving to the lovely Homecoming maids in the parade, reminiscing MC memories, and cheering on the Choctaws in the Homecoming game.

Homecoming celebrates the past and the present of Mississippi College. At Homecoming, we remember where we came from and are proud of how far we’ve come. Those that went before us return to their Alma mater and remind us that even though time passes and trends come and go--tradition never graduates.

So let’s take a trip down MC’s memory lane and see what traditions have stuck around all these years.
