Hundreds of Saint Leo University alumni and their families gathered on University Campus for the 2018 homecoming weekend, November 1 – 4. Alumni came from more than 20 states, Canada, and even as far as Nigeria. They represented nearly 50 different graduating classes, dating as far back as 1947.
The three-day weekend was packed full of a variety of activities—from Brunch with the President to the Lions Tailgate. The Class of 1968 celebrated its 50th reunion with a dinner on Friday night, and Greek Life members participated in a service project with Feeding Children Everywhere, an organization that provides healthy meals to children in need.
The Alumni Association Board of Directors is excited to announce the return of the alumni award program to Saint Leo. At Brunch with the President during Homecoming 2017, Dr. William J. Lennox Jr. continued the tradition of presenting the Benedictine Spirit Award and revived the presentation of the Distinguished Alumni Award.
Honor the Class of ’18, Celebrate Future Classes
Last year, a special campaign was introduced to celebrate the graduating class while raising funds to enable members of future graduating classes to achieve the same success. We look forward to continuing this honor with the Class of 2018.
Your donation of $20.18 or more allows you to write a message that will be displayed on the backs of the graduates’ chairs during the University Campus commencement ceremonies in April. Your gift will help future classes while your message will inspire the current graduating class.
Donations and messages must be received by April 20 and can be submitted online by visiting your.saintleo.edu/chair or calling the Office of Alumni Engagement and Sustained Giving at (352) 588-8667.
