After a 2020 homecoming that was largely virtual, Neumann alumni returned to campus on October 15 – 17 to participate in some traditional festivities and experience new events that were designed to please young and old.
Students kicked off the celebration during the week with a banner contest, Neumann trivia game, homecoming pageant, silent dance party, and CANstruction contest (using cans of food to design structures and then donating the food to the Knights’ Pantry).
On Friday afternoon, Dr. Chris and Mary Domes hosted a reunion brunch for alumni of Our Lady of Angels College, and Angel Smedley ’90 hosted virtual Designer Bag Bingo that evening.
Saturday activities began with a home run derby and the popular Philadelphia General Hospital Endowed Nursing Lecture. This year’s topic was Home Health Care, presented by Steven Landers MD, MPH, president & CEO of VNA Health Group.
In addition to Saturday’s picnic lunch, the youngest Knights enjoyed outdoor activity, led by Arendelle sisters Elsa and Anna, the stars of Frozen. There was also a visit from Captain America, who did his own “hero training.” The characters led sing-a-longs on the CDC lawn.
Homecoming’s signature event, the Knight Under the Stars all-year reunion, featured music, an open bar, hors d’oeuvres, and prizes.
The 2021 celebration concluded on Sunday with Breakfast with the President. Parents of current and prospective students dined with their children at the Crossroads Café Dining Hall with Dr. and Mrs. Domes.
