Homecoming 2014

Welcome to Homecoming 2014!

Homecoming 2014 is the perfect time to make the trip to Mississippi College. Our 2014 celebration includes fun-filled activities for the entire MC family, from members of the 50-Year Club to the youngest future Choctaws. Homecoming is also a time to reconnect with old friends, relive fond memories, and celebrate the bond that unites us as members of the MC family. It’s this special connection we share with each other and with the university that makes Mississippi College a place we long to return to, year after year, decade after decade.
