After a virtual STAY HOMEcoming experience in 2020, Homecoming festivities returned in full force this year as alumni and friends were welcomed back to campus for a full day of fun, including the inauguration of Maurie McInnis as Stony Brook University’s sixth president and the UNITI Cultural Center Ribbon Cutting.
Nothing But Fun and Games at the Homecoming BBQ
Seawolves came together for an afternoon of unlimited BBQ favorites, live music from Radio Riot, photo booth fun with Island Federal and games, including mini golf, axe throwing and more! With a visit from the marching band and student groups, including the cheer team and the Stony Brook Vocalists, spirits were high as alumni and friends reconnected before the big game!
Alumni Programming Reconnects Friends
In the spirit of Homecoming, alumni reconnected with old friends through a series of events hosted throughout the weekend, including:
- Statesman Alumni Breakfast and Q&A with Former Editor-in-Chief Frank Posillico ’13
Thirty Statesman alumni returned to campus to join the current student members for breakfast in the media wing before enjoying a full day of fun at Homecoming.
- Black and Latino Alumni Network Post-Game Drinks and Apps
The Black and Latino Alumni Network (BLA) hosted an after-game reception at the Hilton Garden Inn. The reunion among BLA members was especially touching this year as one of their first opportunities to get together after COVID. There were over 100 alumni in attendance, including NYS Assembly Speaker Carl Heastie ’90.
