Social Clubs celebrate Gold & Platinum Anniversaries

Social Clubs are a part of the W's fabric, like Magnolia Chain and Old Maid's Gate. Homecoming activities are always a highlight for social club alums.

Homecoming 2008
(Y'all Come!)

MUW Homecoming 2008 will once again be a time for renewing our commitment and support for our alma mater while we catch up with friends old and new. A full slate of activities to celebrate all returning alums has been planned, while focusing on reunion years that end in 3 and 8. Everyone should receive a detailed schedule and a reservation form from the Alumni Office.

Whether you just graduated or are celebrating your Golden year, Homecoming 2008 will offer something special for you. There will be a Young Alum party, multiple celebrations for the Golden Girls (class of '58), tours of the campus and Columbus, a theater/musical presentation for entertainment, a Blues and Barbecue picnic and our Alumnae Association will host a gathering aptly called "The Party" for all alums on Friday night.

Of course, some of the greatest pleasures of Homecoming are the unstructured and informal times spent just sitting around talking with friends and remembering the way we were.

In many ways, this Homecoming will be like those of preceding years. However, this year's Homecoming will also be marked by a development that some may find confusing because MUW now has two Alumnae/i associations, and there will be no business meeting at Convocation this year.

You will note in the official Homecoming brochure that separate Board and Business meetings are scheduled for the two associations. It is unfortunate that these meetings are scheduled concurrently in different locations on campus...
