St. Kate's Homecoming 2017

St. Kate's Homecoming 2017

Homecoming returns September 23 — revived and refreshed.
By Sara Berhow

Homecoming isn’t new to St. Kate’s. The first one, sponsored by the Alumnae Association, was held in June 1923. The celebration changed over the years, then went away altogether a number of years ago. In 2017, it’s making a comeback.

The all-new Homecoming focuses on recent graduates returning to campus at its most vibrant time, the beginning of the academic year. On Saturday, September 23, alumnae celebrating 5-, 10-, and 15-year reunions will be welcomed home to St. Kate’s.

The day is packed with fresh and fun programming for young alumnae and guests — yes, friends and families can join the festivities!

There’s a Homecoming brunch for Katies to catch up with their favorite faculty and staff members. (You can even ask us to invite specific professors or staff members.) There are campus tours, an ice cream social, lawn games and a Wildcat soccer game. The creative can sip wine while painting a St. Kate’s scene, guided by an expert artist.

In addition to special activities for the classes of 2002, 2007 and 2012, the sixth annual Katiefest will take place the same day. This fall festival features a sampling of locally brewed beer and Oktoberfest-themed food.
Katiefest is open to alumnae from all class years.
