This year’s Homecoming and Family Weekend featured three class reunions, the defending national champion women’s volleyball team, comedy improv shows, numerous opportunities for socializing and the first-ever Calvin Homecoming Football Game (in full disclosure, it was flag football).

President Le Roy hosted another community town hall meeting and took questions from alumni and parents. He encouraged Calvin-interested folks to seek out the college’s new strategic plan at the Calvin 2019 web site ( The site has a five-minute introductory video that gives the background for the plan.

The Classes of 1969 and 1989 had 45-year and 25-year reunions, and there was a lot of energy in the Prince Center Great Hall for both of these gatherings.

The student–alumni association, named K4L (“Knights for Life”) organized the first Calvin football game to take place on Homecoming Saturday. The seniors and sophomores took the field against the juniors and freshmen, one dressed in gold jerseys and the other in maroon jerseys.

Calvin parents were able to attend classes, gather at the Friday night tailgater on the indoor track and take in the Fall Music Festival.

The following pages depict some of the festivities. The alumni association is looking at a couple of weekends in October 2015 for the next traditional weekend.
