Homecoming is, above all, about reuniting with old friends, and this year, six reunion classes reconnected with their old friend el Cid in an extraordinary way.
As part of the 2009 Homecoming festivities, The Citadel received $12,434,163 in charitable contributions from alumni celebrating their class reunions. The final tally of this year's reunion class giving will be even more substantial, as the campaign period includes contributions made through December 31.
Classes of 1959 and 1969 presented checks exceeding $6.6 million and $4.8 million, respectively, during the Homecoming football game against Wofford, while the Classes of 1949, 1964, 1979, 1989, and 1999 offered reunion gifts totaling $957,107 to support key initiatives at The Military College of South Carolina. << view article >>
