There’s no place like Blackburn…
Chances are that you won’t find Dorothy and Toto anywhere near Carlinville, but then again, would anyone associated with Blackburn really need the legendary “Wizard of Oz” characters to tell them that there’s “No Place Like Homecoming” at BC?
We’re so very thankful for another opportunity to gather in person, and we definitely don’t take that privilege for granted these days. The fun that was had by all at last year’s Homecoming may be hard to top, but we love a challenge! The campus promises to be alive with the imagination, creativity, and opulence that the world of Wizard of Oz invokes, and it will be a perfect time to connect with friends, staff, and professors from your past.
We hope every single one of you will be able to make it to this year’s Homecoming—a celebration of finding home again and again, and making that remarkable journey with your own fabulous cast of characters that you found along the way. And if you can’t make it for the whole weekend, we’d love to see you at even one of the entertaining events! Just can’t make it this year? We’re sad, but we understand. But in the immortal words of Dorothy herself, “I think I’ll miss you most of all.”
For those of you who can make the trip—and we hope that’s many, many of you—we’re looking forward to seeing you and celebrating your Homecoming! After all, we all know, “there’s no place like home!”
