Homecoming Highlights

Homecoming 2002 was a great success, launched once again with the Sports Hall of Fame Luncheon and the induction into the hall of great McGill athletes from bygone days. Thousands of Homecoming revellers returned to campus from classes ranging from the 1930s to the 1990s. Popular events included the Lunch et Livres authors series at the McGill Bookstore, the Leacock Luncheon with guest speaker and former Ontario premier Bob Rae, and out at Macdonald Campus, the Sir William Macdonald Luncheon and the Gathering of the Clan Barbecue. This was the first time ever that Homecoming included an event for gay alumni, the Return to the Rainbow reception. Following are Homecoming scenes caught on film by McGill News paparazzi. Start planning now for this year's Homecoming, which will take place from October 16 to 19.
