The connections you can make in Boston, as well as the opportunities in the surrounding areas here, are second to none in the media industry. Being at Curry, there are so many different ways to get your foot in the door early, at places like NESN, The Boston Globe and Gillette Stadium, home of the New England Patriots and Revolution.

Homecoming and Family Weekend 2013 Round-up: Family, Friends, Fall and Fun!

October 22, 2013

 

Autumn was in the air as Curry College welcomed alumni, families, friends and fans back to campus for the annual Homecoming and Family Weekend, from October 18-20.  Visitors were treated to a bevy of events and activities, including the second annual Friday Night Lights Homecoming football game, a fall festival, a fun run, and much more!

Friday Night Lights!

The weekend kicked off with a matchup between the Colonels Football squad and the visiting Salve Regina Seahawks on a crisp, fall night under the lights of Katz Field.

Before game time, fans and families took part in pre-game festivities including tailgating, and the Chili and Chowder Cook-off competitions. Cindy Nagrath, mother of Hans Nagrath, Class of 2017, took the win in the Chili competition, while Tom Finnigan, father of Lauren Finnigan, Class of 2017, took the win in the Chowder competition.

On the field, the Colonels battled New England Football Conference foe Salve Regina for three quarters, before the Seahawks pulled away for a 43-10 win. Junior fullback Jordan Shairs scored Curry's lone touchdown on an 11-yard run in the third quarter. Senior placekicker Zach Kumin also booted a 39-yard field goal. Curry senior quarterback Kevin Fruwirth was 22 of 43 for 268 yards. Shairs finished with 44 yards on eight rushes. He also had a team high five receptions for 57 yards.

For the second straight year, the Homecoming game was streamed live online. More than a dozen communication students, with the assistance of Milton Access Television, broadcast the game to hundreds of loyal supporters across the country.

Friday night's schedule also included a reception for alums of the football program, along with a Shabbat service and kosher dinner in the Student Center.

A Festive Saturday

Saturday morning, families of current students had a chance to meet up with faculty members for a delicious breakfast in the Student Center. Afterwards, many darted off to attend a slew of academic, alumni and campus life forums hosted by Curry faculty, alumni and students.

These presentations included:

One of the highlights of the day was the Fall Fun Fest, held outside the Student Center in Westhaver Park. Students and families gathered on a perfect fall afternoon under sunny skies. The festival included tractor-pulled hayrides, pumpkin decorating, pony rides, a dress-up photo booth and lots of fall-themed food and drink.

The festival also included a performance from both the Curry Dance Team and Curry's hip-hop and reggae dance group, Multi-Essence.

Afternoon events included Men's and Women's Soccer, while over at the Alumni House, reunions of the classes of '78, '83, '88, '93, '98, '03, and '08 were in full swing. 

AS ALways, Sunday is Fun Run Day

The weekend concluded with the Third Annual Colonels Fun Run to benefit the Mosi Tatupu Memorial Scholarship Fund.  Dozens of alumni and friends participated in the 2-mile campus run to honor the late, former Curry football coach and New England Patriots fullback.

First place went to first-year psychology major Matthew Eaton.

"It was terrific to see so many alumni and parents enjoy the weekend. There was tremendous energy on our Campus," said Chris Lawson, Vice President for Institutional Advancement.

"There was great representation from alumni from all decades including many young alumni who recently participated in the Colonel's Involvement Challenge and our parents really appreciated the engagement with our faculty. Overall, Homecoming & Family Weekend couldn't have gone any better."
