Homecoming 2006 "Going Back to 49er Days"

The CSULB Alumni Association, 49er Athletic Association, and Associated Students Inc. invite alumni and friends to celebrate Homecoming 2006 with a nostalgic “Going Back to 49er Days” theme. Homecoming will be held on Saturday, Feb. 11, from 11 a.m.-3 p.m. in parking lot 13 which is adjacent to The Walter Pyramid. To fit the event’s theme, CSULB logo or Western attire is appreciated.

The CSULB Alumni Association and 49er Athletic Association will co-host a group tent for members, the campus community, and friends. It’s a great opportunity to reunite with old friends and associates and to welcome our new president, Dr. F. King Alexander.

A barbeque buffet will be served from noon-2 p.m., with meal tickets costing $10 for children (under 12), $20 for adult members and their guests, $25 for non-members. Tickets for the basketball games are $7 and children (under 12) are admitted into the game free with purchase of a meal ticket. Included in your meal ticket package is the opportunity to win entrance to Disneyland’s exclusive Club 33, two tickets and dinner to Pageant of the Masters, an Epson Photo Printer, and two tickets to Jewels of the Night. Also, a special commemorative giveaway will be provided.

Homecoming

Homecoming features many free activities for the whole family including campus tours (noon–2 p.m.), private tours of the Japanese Garden (11:30 a.m.-1:30 p.m.), the weiner dog stampede/race (11:30 a.m.), interactive games, alumni historical and athletic photo gallery, face painting, caricature artist, entertainment featuring The Jeff Severson Band, and other surprises.

The homecoming festivities will be followed by a pair of Big West Conference basketball games when the women’s team takes on Pacific at 3 p.m. and the men face conference rival UC Santa Barbara at 5 p.m. To participate in the pre-game party or purchase meal and basketball tickets or make shuttle bus reservations, contact Nancy Becker at 562/985-7022 or via e-mail at nbecker@csulb.edu.
