Pictures dating back to the early days of the college show students taking part in the tradition, so it seemed natural to make it a part of the Homecoming festivities, she said.
The Tent Party at the SUNY Plattsburgh Field House is a prelude to the many athletic events lined up for Saturday afternoon, including men’s soccer versus SUNY Fredonia at 1 p.m. and men’s lacrosse against McGill at 4 p.m.
Meanwhile, the Student Association will celebrate its 50th year of service at a gathering in the Algonquin Dining Hall. And an open house in the School of Business and Economics and computer science building will honor this year’s Off to a Good Start and Faculty Staff Impact award recipients, while showing off the new building.
Other events include the Cardinal Athletic Hall of Fame Induction Ceremony, the Welcome Back Social at the Monopole, a Cardinal at the Arts exhibit at the Burke Gallery and a tribute to late professor Al Montanaro.
