2014 Homecoming Events - Saturday, October 18

Saturday is Game Day, but there are plenty of activities leading up to the kickoff! Live music, lots of food, and fun for the kids will be happening over at the Otteson Parking lot. Bring out the grill with your family and friends or enjoy a full meal from Pio Pete's Pit Stop. We'll have entertainment by Carroll couple Mark Truesdell and Candice Truesdell Nokes '89 of The Spirals.

When you're filled up and ready for more fun, scout out your favorite spot and watch this year's Homecoming parade. Also, don't forget to fit in some time before the game to check out campus by joining us on a tour. Then, fire up your Pioneer spirit and cheer on the team during the afternoon football game. Go Pios!

Reunion gatherings on Saturday include the 10th, 20th, 25th, 30th and 40th.
