Dear Fellow Explorers,

I am excited to invite you back to celebrate all that’s changed and everything that hasn’t for Homecoming 2013. Homecoming gives us an opportunity to unite with each other, celebrate our Explorer pride, and honor our Lasallian heritage.

Homecoming is a perfect opportunity to revisit La Salle memories, reunite with classmates and friends, and rediscover the spirit of La Salle and our ever-changing campus. The week will be highlighted by an Explorer family party under the tent, Explorer basketball games, class and affinity reunions, and networking receptions, and the celebration will be capped by a spectacular Alumni Association Awards Dinner. A full listing of events for Homecoming Week follows.

Make plans to come back to campus with your La Salle friends and family now. We expect to have a sell-out crowd for the Homecoming Tent and game, so please register by Nov. 8. Thanks for your participation, and I look forward to seeing you at Homecoming.

And remember … Never Stop Exploring!

Trey Ulrich, ’99, MBA ‘02
Assistant Vice President, Alumni Relations
