At the south end of campus, returning students will have noticed one obvious alteration to their Geneva College: Reeves Field, bigger and brighter than ever, was expanded last May, and now contains newly installed turf.
Nicole Braddock Bromley, a survivor of childhood sexual abuse, shared her powerful testimony of recovery with Geneva on Oct. 4, 2018. The event, hosted in Skye Lounge, was a partnership and collaboration of the Health and Counseling Services, Fellowship of Christian Athletes and Upper Room.
Despite rainy weather Saturday afternoon, Homecoming festivities continued and this year saw Steven Mandella and Paige Wintermute crowned as king and queen of homecoming court.
Geneva College’s 2018 Homecoming marked the fifteenth alumni band under Coach Donald Kephart’s direction. The performance on Reeves Field featured two hundred fifteen returning alumni joined with one hundred five current band members.
Homecoming 2018 arrived with the new addition of a traditional college practice: Spirit Week. Sophomore Melice Rodriguez collaborated with the Geneva College Student Government, Student Athlete Advisor Committee and the Center for Student Engagement to invite all students, faculty and staff to participate in showing their school pride. The festivities were a way of encouraging college spirit around campus as everyone prepared for Homecoming and Family Weekend.
The foundation of Geneva’s new gazebo, funded by the 2018 graduating class, has been laid on the grounds outside of Old Main. With Physical Plant on the job, the gazebo, complete with swings, is set for completion by the end of October.
