Bethlehem, Pa., September 26, 2013—Hundreds of Moravian alumni will return to their alma mater for the 2013 Homecoming Weekend on Friday, October 4 and Saturday, October 5.

The weekend begins with the Rocco Calvo Golf Tournament on Friday, October 4 at the Bethlehem Golf Club. On campus Friday morning students will continue a Moravian tradition, framing a home right on campus for Habitat for Humanity. Students, alum, and Habitat members will work side-by-side as they build a home that will one day house a family in the Lehigh Valley. The build is held from 9 a.m. until 1 p.m. on Friday.

Later Friday evening, Moravian will hold a Study-Abroad Reunion where alumni and current students who studied abroad will share their experiences. Class reunions are being held for the classes of 1968, 1973, 1978, 1983, 1988, 1993, 1998, 2003, 2008, and 2013.

The Moravian Classroom Experience session will be held at 11:00 a.m. in PPHAC 101 and 102, where faculty members will demonstrate the latest in classroom technology.

The practice field behind the Rocco Calvo Field will be filled with the cheers of Hounds fans at the annual Tailgate Party that begins at 11:00 a.m. At noon, an alumni band joined by the college marching band, cheerleaders, fraternities and sororities, will march to the gates of the stadium from Johnston Hall in the Homecoming Parade.
