The concept of homecoming is as American as a double-cheeseburger and as Ambrosian as Chicken Nugget Day in the Cosgrove Caf.
You can fill up on both as Homecoming 2012 kicks off with an alumni get-together at the Circle Tap in Davenport the night of Sept. 28 and then run or walk off those calories in the 17th annual Killer Bee 5K Run/Walk the following morning. And should you run up an appetite? Perfect. A Taste of Ambrose will precede the annual Homecoming football contest at Brady Street Stadium.
The classes of 1967 and 1972 and the nursing class of 1962 will convene on campus for homecoming this year along with emeritus honoree, the Class of 1962.
