2016 Homecoming Schedule

It is with great excitement we welcome all Trojans back to our beautiful campus and provide a time for you to reunite with your fellow classmates during our 2016 Homecoming.

HLGU classes of 1966, 1976, 1986, 1996 and 2006 - you will be our honored guests at Homecoming 2016! We hope you will begin making plans to attend September 30 - October 2! This will be an event you won't want to miss!

Homecoming is the time of year for Trojans to return to their roots, and we are looking forward to honoring the class of 1966. Their 50 year class reunion will leave each of us with a better sense of the tradition and pride that goes hand-in-hand with being alumni of this great university.

Friday's highlights include the alumni golf classic, The President's Reception, and Banquet. On Saturday, come visit the alumni tent where we'll have food for purchase and a place to sit and catch up with fellow alumni before watching our soccer teams. Were you an HLGU athlete? If so, we have alumni games for you to participate in! Children will enjoy performances by HLGU's The New Edition and a bounce house.

You are then invited to worship with us on Sunday during a special chapel service led by HLGU's Praise Song, special music by HLGU’s Chamber Choir, and message by Dr. Anthony Allen in Parker Theatre at the Roland Fine Arts Center at 10:30 a.m. This is your opportunity to end our great weekend with inspiration from the Word.

There are many more exciting activities happening during Homecoming. Mark your calendar, call your classmates, and make plans to come and have a great Homecoming at HLGU!
