It was Homecoming and Parents Weekend at its best, filled with emotion, inspiration, and Falcon fan spirit. Alumni and parents traveled from near and far. Alumnus of the Year Tim Hanstad ’85 spoke of restoring the world’s poor through land ownership. Over in E.E. Bach Theatre, the audience was swept up in The Illusion, the tale of a magician in search of his lost son. And in a bittersweet turn, retiring Professor of Music Eric Hanson conducted the last official SPU Symphony Orchestra concert of an illustrious 37-year career.

“It was great to see so many alums and parents on campus and having this much fun,” said Alumni and Parent Relations Director Bryan Jones.
