On Saturday, Nov. 19, guests participated in tours, lectures, reunions, and enjoyed fun activities at Scot Fest. Guests also cheered for the men’s basketball team, which closed the night with a 96-50 victory. Homecoming 2016 had something for everyone, said UCR Alumni Association Executive Director Jorge Ancona, who also serves as assistant vice chancellor of Alumni & Constituent Relations.

“This past weekend served as a wonderful reminder of the pride we all feel in being Highlanders and how our alumni are Living the Promise,” Ancona said. “We honored three very deserving alumni at the 30th Annual Alumni Awards of Distinction. All three spoke eloquently of their time at UCR and how it provided the foundation for their success. On Saturday we welcomed alumni, parents, students and prospective students to campus.”

This year the alumni office partnered with undergraduate admissions. Read more about it in the Alumni Blog.
