CSUS Homecoming 2000:
Special Events, Alumni Center Opening

Homecoming 2000 at California State University, Sacramento has mushroomed into more than an annual celebration of the University's alumni and one of the biggest football games of the year.

This year, the weekend has grown into a week of special events Oct. 8-14, all helping to serve as an official campus welcome for the new Steven Lee Yamshon Alumni Center.

The week begins with a fun run on Oct. 8 and ends with a pre-game party and homecoming football game on Oct. 14. In between will be academic forums, the annual Honor's Luncheon, the official Alumni Center opening, and an Alumni Association 50th anniversary party. There will also be a series of student "Spirit Week" events, including a campus dance, a bonfire the night before the homecoming game and a tug-of-war tournament that concludes during halftime of the game.

The homecoming football game, vs. Montana State, is at 6:05 p.m., Saturday, Oct. 14 at Hornet Stadium.

More information is available by contacting the CSUS alumni relations office at (916) 278-6295.
