Homecoming Awards Chapel
Friday | October 27 | 10:00 a.m.

Every year, the University family gathers in Baker Chapel to honor alumni and friends of the University who have served ETBU in various capacities. Each year, we induct a new class of Golden Blazers, recognize the 50-year reunion class, and honor six alumni for their contributions to their alma mater or society. There is an honoree luncheon immediately following Chapel in the Great Hall of the Great Commission Center. Read more about this year's Homecoming Award recipients at www.ETBU.edu/HomecomingAwards.
