Homecoming, which will be held on Saturday, Oct. 18, is one of the main events on campus during the fall season, where students, alumni, and faculty are given an opportunity to come together and celebrate their school pride.
The football game is one of the main events of the weekend. It will take place at 1 p.m. at the newly renovated LIU Post Bethpage Federal Credit Union Stadium where the Pioneers will play against St. Anselm. Tailgating in the Pratt parking lot will take place from 11 a.m.–5 p.m. On the South Campus, there will be a free family carnival with rides, games, food, and drinks.
Attending the pep rally on Oct. 17 at 7 p.m. at Pratt Recreation Center can pump students and alumni. The pep rally is an event that introduces LIU Post’s fall sports teams to the student body and alumni. The event includes dance and spirit contests, and provides food and drinks catered by Aramark.
On Saturday, Oct. 18, there will also be many alumni events. The LIU Post Fields will host alumni games for lacrosse, baseball, field hockey, and softball at 10 a.m. An alumni breakfast for women’s and men’s basketball and wrestling will be held in the Pratt Center at 10 a.m., and our own Pioneer newspaper will be having its first ever alumni breakfast at 11 a.m. in the newsroom in Hillwood Commons.
Be sure to plan ahead and support the Pioneers. For more information about on-campus events, go to the Concierge Desk in Hillwood, or the student activities office located on the first floor of Hillwood Commons.
