Homecoming – September 29 to October 2, 2016


Excitement is building for Homecoming 2016, September 29 to October 2!

A Hesston College Homecoming: Home Sweet Hesston, will be a joint celebration between Hesston College and the greater Hesston community as Hesston High School is hosting its homecoming and 50-year anniversary celebration, including an all-school reunion, the same weekend. Outstanding alumni that attended both Hesston College and Hesston High School will be recognized and serve as resource persons throughout the weekend. Hesston College Homecoming celebration events will, as usual, fill the campus over the weekend and more than a dozen classes will gather to celebrate their anniversaries. We anticipate a strong synergy in hosting the overall events at the same time. Dual alumni of Hesston College and Hesston High School are particularly invited to return to Hesston for both celebrations.

College events include:

  • Student Scholarship Golf Benefit sponsored by Excel Industries
  • Golden Gables Lunch for 50 year and greater college and academy classes
  • Lark soccer games and volleyball matches
  • Friday evening joint college, community and high school celebration
  • Coffeehouse and student entertainment
  • Saturday Family Festival with diverse food and performance events for adults and youth
  • Outstanding dual alumni career presentations
  • Partner Appreciation Luncheon
  • Sunday morning worship with alumni speaker at Hesston Mennonite Church

Bring your high school-age children and grandchildren (and their friends!) for a special legacy student campus visit.
