The Radford University community—alumni, students, faculty, staff and friends —reminisced and renewed ties at the Winter Homecoming 2012 celebration Friday and Saturday, Feb. 24–25, and explored RU's expanding campus. For the first time, the annual event featured a Young Alumni Reunion for the classes of 2001–11.
"There is just something about Radford, I always want to come back," said Brian Taugher '09, a criminal justice major from Lynchburg. "It is perfect—people, size, scenery."
The festivities began Friday, when alumni returned to the classroom to share their experiences and advice with current students as part of Alumni Teaching Day. Wisdom and experience flowed from 23 guest professors in more than 50 classrooms across campus. Among the professions represented were publishers, portfolio managers, judges, authors and entrepreneurs.
