BONFIRES AND PARADES, football and family. It was all there for the first fall Homecoming and Family Weekend in more than a decade.

It was one of the biggest and liveliest events on the Forest Grove campus in years, fueled by the return of football and the addition of Family Weekend to the traditional homecoming activities—the first such fall event in more than 10 years.

Students, alumni and friends enjoyed tailgating, wine tasting, the Noise Parade, a roaring bonfire on Tom Reynolds field and a tight football game, lost by the Boxers 24-12 to Whitworth. After the game, Boxer Nation gathered in the new covered Holce Tennis facility for live music and a barbeque.

This year Homecoming and Family Weekend Oct. 28-30 will also be the official alumni reunion. Mark those calendars! For more: pacificu.edu/alumni
