The college will also welcome back the brothers and sisters of Kappa Sigma Epsilon, Psi Delta Omega, and Alpha Beta Chi for their annual reunions and meetings throughout the morning.
The day continues with the "Aloha Kids!" activities, including family-friendly fun like coloring tiki masks, a treasure hunt, the Binghamton Ross Park ZooMobile, and other games and activities. Alumni will then be able to choose from a tailgate lunch during Bronco volleyball, soccer, and lacrosse games, a wine tasting hosted by Pail Shop Vineyards of Fly Creek, an estate planning seminar or a presentation on student activism in the 1960s and '70s, by Dr. Terry Hamblin.
The Athletic Hall of Fame Induction Ceremony on Saturday will recognize James McCloe '71 for Wrestling, Michael Cebula '05 for Cross Country and Track and Field, and Gary Cole, Athletic Director and Coach from 1980 to 2006.
