Homecoming 2019: A Celebration to Remember

Homecoming 2020 set for November 5 – 8

Saint Leo University welcomed alumni from across the nation and world to University Campus for the 2019 homecoming weekend, November 1 – 3. The weekend of activities included a Greek mixer, brunch with the president, a special reunion for the Class of 1969, and the Lions Rally, among other activities.

During the weekend, four Greek organizations celebrated milestone anniversaries: Alpha Sigma, Alpha Phi Alpha, Kappa Alpha Psi, and Sigma Lambda Gamma. The Rho Xi chapter of Alpha Phi Alpha, Inc. celebrated its 30th anniversary in a special way with a scholarship ball. The chapter presented the university with a check for $28,080 to establish a new endowed scholarship for student leaders.

Saint Leo Athletics played a major role in the weekend with men’s soccer, women’s soccer, volleyball, and women’s basketball hosting home competitions. Additionally, softball and baseball held their annual alumni games on Saturday.

During the Brunch with the President event, five alumni were given awards in recognition of their accomplishments. Congratulations to the following alumni:

  • Roaring Onward Recognition: Antonio Cruz ’18; Christopher Laney ’15; and Kevin Sullivan ’13
  • Benedictine Spirit Award: John Gassler ’47
