KEENE, TEX. – On April 11-14, Southwestern Adventist University will host its annual Homecoming weekend. Alums from all over the world are invited to join as we bring the university’s 125th year birthday celebration to a close.

The weekend begins Thursday with a banquet celebration and a special “Welcome home” dinner. On Friday, guests will have the opportunity to support students and compete with fellow alumni in an 18-hole golf tournament. Friday night vespers will feature the Department of Music’s University Singers.

Southwestern Union Conference President Larry R. Moore will deliver a Sabbath morning message during the worship services at the Keene Seventh-day Adventist Church. Dominik Alipoon, from the Oklahoma Conference, will lead the Elevate service. A potluck lunch for both alumni and community members will follow the church services. In the afternoon, members of the honor classes are invited to come together for class photos. Southwestern Adventist University’s Dinosaur Science Museum and other university departments will also be open for visitors. Homecoming Sabbath will close with a reunion concert by vocal ensemble One Desire. On Saturday evening local alums will host class parties followed by Sunday morning’s soccer games, disk golf, and a breakfast buffet to wrap up the 125th birthday homecoming weekend.

Young alumni and those young at heart are invited to participate in volleyball and basketball Knights Unite tournaments on Saturday night and a young alumni BBQ on Sunday. For tickets and more information, visit
