November 6, 2023 - Homecoming & Reunion Weekend brings alumni home to reconnect with fellow Red Foxes over sports, music, food, and festivities. Kicking off alumni weekend activities was a special Homecoming Welcome Reception and the 10th Annual Alumni Awards Presentation.


The College proudly recognized and celebrated four extraordinary alumni with the 2023 Alumni Association Awards. Dedication, hard work, and a passion for giving back were all shared characteristics amongst this year’s award recipients. While each of their stories is uniquely inspiring, they collectively embody the Marist values of service and community.
