Homecoming 2022 celebrated on the Hill
Alumni, students, families, friends, and community members cheered on the Green Terror during Homecoming 2022 festivities.
Alumni, students, families, friends, and community members didn't let a little rain prevent them from celebrating Homecoming 2022 on Saturday, Oct. 1.
The day began with brunch hosted by the Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Committee of the Alumni Council. In Baker Chapel, the Student Alumni Council honored the tradition of reading the names of alumni who have passed during the Memorial Bell Ringing Ceremony.
At Kenneth R. Gill Stadium, alumni were welcomed at the Decades Tent while others experienced McDaniel's one-of-a-kind tailgating during the football game. McDaniel won the Homecoming football game against Dickinson (Grinwis Totals Three Touchdowns in 21-13 Homecoming Win).
