Medill welcomed alumni back to campus for Homecoming

Medill welcomed thousands of alumni back to campus for Northwestern’s Homecoming weekend Oct. 17-19. In addition to the festivities organized by the university, Medill held two special events for alums on the Evanston campus:

  • Dean’s Reception on Friday, Oct. 17, from 4-6 p.m. in the McCormick Foundation Center Forum, formerly McCormick Tribune Center.
  • Casual tailgate on Saturday, October 18 from 4-6 p.m. at Ryan Field, at 1633 Central Street next to Mustard’s Last Stand. 

We were also particularly excited to welcome back alumni from the following years who  celebrated milestones. Read about some of our featured alumni whose classes celebrated reunions during Homecoming weekend.
