Homecoming 2017, Nov. 9-11, will feature old favorites and the newest tradition: the Lipscomb Honors ceremony, recognizing Lipscomb alumni for their inspiring positive impact on the world.
This year the highlights include a Bison basketball game against Emory University on Friday, Nov. 10 at 6:30 p.m. in Allen Arena. For those who can’t get enough, the Bisons will play again on Sunday afternoon, Nov. 12, against Morehead State University.
In recent years, students have voted on the Miss Lipscomb and Bachelor of Ugliness honors later in the school year, but this year voting will take place earlier in the academic year to allow alumni to join in honoring these two worthy students during the Nov. 10 basketball game.
Throughout Homecoming weekend, Lipscomb Theatre will present the hit romantic comedy musical She Loves Me, telling the story of Amalia and Georg, shop clerks in the 1930s who are carrying on a romantic correspondence with secret admirers. The musical is based on the same story as the movie You’ve Got Mail. The performance will be staged in Willard Collins Auditorium, Nov. 10-12, and tickets are available at lipscomb.edu/theatre.
For alumni who are ready to put on their boots and kick up their heels, the ever popular Tau Phi Cowboy Show will stage a special encore performance of 2017’s Cowboy Show featuring Tau Phi alumni performers and a very special musical guest (whom alumni will surely recognize, Ellenburg said) on Saturday, Nov. 11, in front of the Allen Bell Tower.
In addition to these signature events, Homecoming 2017 will offer an entire weekend of milestone reunions (including 25th and 50th class reunions), college and department reunions and receptions, and social club reunions, including several 50th anniversary reunions.
