Despite the constant rain, approximately 200 people attended the Homecoming 2003 block party on Saturday. Several departments, offices, alumni, and student organizations were on hand to support the men’s basketball team prior to its game against rival James Madison University. President Alan Merten, front right, joined the Fairfax Social Club Alumni Group in this U-Haul to stay dry. “Clearly a tradition has been established when people are willing to brave the elements on a day like Saturday and show their school spirit,” says Traci Claar, Homecoming Committee member.
The Events Management Office finished in first place in the overall faculty/staff spirit competition. The group gets its name added to the traveling trophy, a plaque to keep in their office, and a pizza party. Information Services claimed second place, and Development/Alumni Office rounded out the top three.
