As homecoming approaches and you look for ideas to engage students, alumni are traveling from all around (or nearby) to revisit their times at your college. Whether it has been 4 years or 40, they went to your institution and came away with stories, memories.

Something that could be gathered and a fun read for students during homecoming would be a collection of alum stories — what was there time at the school like? Did they have any embarrassing moments? Did they pull off something crazy?

Gather a collection of alumni stories and you can produce it in the form of an E-newsletter in preparation for homecoming, or it could be an insert of the college newspaper. Not only will current students have a connection to former students, but they will also be mentally gearing up for homecoming in the process!
