Homecoming and Family Weekend 2009. Family photo. Fanning.


Homecoming weekend featured an impressive lineup of events for all ages including a Halloween costume parade for kids, a student-run haunted house and a range of events for returning alumni.


Rival RPI was on hand for a Friday night hockey game, won by RPI 4-3 in overtime, and a Saturday afternoon gridiron battle, won by Union 20-15. The football win, highlighted by junior running back Chris Coney’s 138 yards and three touchdowns, delivered the Dutchman Shoes Trophy back to Union after a three-year absence.


More than 2,000 people, including alums and their families, visited the campus for the festivities.


“This weekend reflected the spirit and pride of Union,” said Nick Famulare ’92, director of Alumni Relations. “We expect another colorful fall weekend in 2010 and invite all families and alumni back to campus.”


The 2010 weekend will be held from Oct. 15 – 17 and will feature a football game against St. Lawrence University.
