“Homecoming weekend is an important touchstone for many alumni,” says Vice President for Alumni Relations Martha Beattie ’76. “We hope to have a huge turnout for the wide range of programming offered.”
On October 26, Dartmouth Night festivities will begin with the annual parade, which travels along Lebanon and Main streets before circling the Green. Following the parade, President Carol L. Folt, Beattie, and Director of Athletics Harry Sheehywill be among the speakers addressing Dartmouth students and alumni from the steps of Dartmouth Hall. Football captain Patrick Lahey ’12 and field hockey captain Maya Herm ’13 will also speak.
