Homecoming 2019 At A Glance:

Alumni attended Homecoming from all across the United States and Canada.

  • Alumni from 23 different states and 4 Canadian provinces; reaching from Vancouver to Florida.

The class with the highest attendance makes the most noise.

  • Class of 1984 (35-years), had the highest Homecoming attendance for their 2nd reunion in a row.


  • Class of 1999 (20-years), came in 1st for representing the most diverse geographic locations, with 11 states and 1 province.


  • Class of 1979 (40-years), had the 3rd highest attendance.

We don't stop at 50 years….

  • Class of 1969 (50-years), and three additional classes were celebrating their reunions: the Classes of 1964, 1959, and 1949.

Still going strong…

  • Celebrating his 70-year reunion, from the Northern IL College of Optometry Class of 1949, Dr. Robert Voss traveled all the way from Texas with his wife to celebrate with us. He informed us that he still loves optometry and continues to practice.
