The Office of Alumni Relations is excited to welcome all of you back for Homecoming 2013, September 27–29, and the weekend's reunion activities. Below are details regarding the reunion program called the Ellsworth Excursion.
Congratulations on your upcoming milestone reunion from The College at Brockport! Your class will be honored at Homecoming Weekend 2013. The reason you received this package is because you have been chosen by a classmate to participate in the Ellsworth Excursion! Alumni are sending Golden Eagles around the world to see whose class can win the Ellsworth Excursion challenge. Prizes will be awarded for most miles logged, most classmate visits, most creative photo, and most unique destination. Join in the fun today!
