Come Full Circle for Homecoming 2007

BYU’s week of Homecoming celebrations will begin with opening ceremonies and end with a football game against Air Force. Wedged between will be reunions, student noonday activities, alumni guest lectures, dances, free food, Spectacular, a parade, the Cougar Run, a baby contest, a free pancake breakfast, and True Blue Football. This year’s Homecoming theme, “Come Full Circle,” is inspired by an episode in the life of Karl G. Maeser, the honored founder for Homecoming 2007. “Brother Maeser’s story about maintaining one’s integrity within the boundaries of a personally drawn chalk circle resonates as much today as it did more than 100 years ago,” explains John C. Lewis (BA ’77), chairman of BYU’s Homecoming Committee. “At Homecoming, we will honor several people who have come full circle professionally, personally, and spiritually. And we hope BYU alumni everywhere will round their personal circles by returning to their alma mater for a great Homecoming week.”
