his best memories that involved rigging some speakers in the SJBC dorms to produce the noise of cars crashing and babies crying!


On Saturday, after the Founders’ Day Celebration Chapel and lunch, over 70 attendees gathered to watch 16 alums and 16 students assemble their sense of humor and paddles as they battled during a Ping-Pong tournament for the chance to win an iPad Mini and bragging rights of course! President Jackson represented students and Bryce Jessup captured an impressive win to represent alumni.


Twelve lectures were also offered on Saturday providing attendees with a wide variety from which to choose. Topics ranged from Billy Graham and the American Presidency to stories of how God is using alumni to bring transformation all over the globe, to understanding teens and pre-teens or keeping sane in the mental health field or faith and art and critical issues facing our world today and how we can make a difference.


A young alum mixer followed the lectures for classmates who graduated from WJU between 2005 to 2015. Tis opportunity allowed alumni


to reconnect and to network with other alums. A tailgate feast complete with barbecue hot dogs and hamburgers was enjoyed by all as well as the opportunity to observe the most recent time capsule sealing that took place on the soccer field.


“It is an exciting time to say I am part of this community.”


Te time capsule was filled with photos and sentiments from alumni and is expected to be opened during the 100th anniversary of William Jessup University.


Other alums chose to join former student Mike Sampson who brought his guitar and treated many onlookers in Crossroads Café as he sang worship songs with various alumni throughout the evening.


Later, others joined the bustling Warrior Arena for the women and men’s basketball games. Te Lady Warriors fought a great game against


14th ranked Vanguard to keep the game within five points to as late as five minutes remaining in play. It wasn’t until two minutes remaining before Vanguard managed to pull away with a 49-35 win.


Te men’s game could be considered one of the greatest games of basketball played inside Warrior Arena as the Warriors showed down against defending National Champions, Vanguard University. Te game went into overtime and took two extra periods to determine a winner. In the end, it was a miraculous long range three point shot for Vanguard to end the game with a win for the visiting team.


Overall, Homecoming 2015 was a memorable two-day event that brought happy tears to those who remembered their past and took note of what God is doing at William Jessup University as we move into the future God has prepared. Jessup is already preparing for next year’s Homecoming celebration and looks forward to continuing this wonderful tradition of gathering annually to celebrate the shared experiences of alumni, past and present.
