Homecoming 2016 was jam packed with activities for alumni, students, families, and the local community to enjoy. The College celebrated the completion of the Williams Arts Campus on North Third Street with an Arts Gala and Open House. Engineering students and alumni built a 150-foot replica of the Easton Free Bridge on the Quad as part of the 150th anniversary of Lafayette engineering. Athletics dedicated the newly-renovated Weinstein Natatorium. Then, there were picnics, tailgates, and the football game against Holy Cross.

    Homecoming was a delightful time as usual – a great time to gather once per year with old friends and their wives. Hats off to all who provide such a warm welcome to alumni – everyone on every staff was invariably friendly and gracious. I missed last year’s game – the first without Jim Finnan in the announcer’s booth. Will you forgive a few observations about some changes I noticed? (1) The public address volume was substantially louder than before. Believe it or not, we are not all deaf!! Increased volume does not equal increased excitement! (2) I’m sure the new announcer is a fine fellow, but he might contain his enthusiasm – which at times sounded like the World Wrestling Federation. The visual and sound bites from the digital display provide plenty of zest on their own. (3) Why the ear-splitting music tracks before EVERY SINGLE DOWN?? You could not exchange a comment with seatmates about the play that was made or what may come next! Even the players on the field must have had difficulty hearing the play calls. Talk about overkill…We realize that changes come and go, but these three detract from the game and need to be re-examined.
    Please accept these comments in the spirit offered by an grateful and appreciative alumnus. Thank you!
