McMaster welcomes alumni home

Thousands of alumni will return to McMaster this weekend for the University's Homecoming activities.

Reunions, campus tours, a concert and a football game are some of the many events scheduled for the weekend, which will kick off with the Celebration of Sport dinner and Athletics Hall of Fame induction Friday night.

The Marauders football team will play the Windsor Lancers at 1 p.m. at Ron Joyce Stadium Saturday. A free chilli lunch will be served at Marauder plaza outside the stadium before the game.

Burlington, Ont. band Walk Off The Earth, along with Ubiquitous Synergy Seeker and Ill Scarlett, will play the Homecoming concert, slated for Oct. 12 at the Burridge Gym. Walk Off The Earth is best known for their unique cover of Gotye's popular hit "Somebody That I Used to Know", played by five people on just one guitar.

A $50 gift card to Titles Bookstore is up for grabs for a random Instagram or Twitter user who hashtags their Homecoming photos with #GoMacGo or #McMaster.
