SOUTHFIELD—Lawrence Technological University is gearing up for a return to in-person events at its Homecoming Week festivities, Sunday, Oct. 17 to Saturday, Oct. 23.

For the location of all activities, see www.ltu.edu/map.

The fun begins Sunday, Oct. 17 at 7 p.m. with a talent show of Lawrence Tech’s student athletes at the university’s Don Ridler Field House. On Tuesday, Oct. 19, there will be a draft for the Homecoming powder puff football game at 12:30 p.m. On Wednesday, Oct. 20 at 7 p.m. there’s a women’s soccer game against Rochester University. On Thursday, Oct. 21, it’s a 9 p.m. powder puff football game at Blue Devils Stadium on 10 Mile Road, with a special show by the LTU Marching Band and the announcement of the university’s Homecoming royalty.

On Friday, Oct. 22, it’s the women’s basketball season opener against Mt. Vernon Nazarene University at 5 p.m. at Don Ridler Field House, followed by a 7 p.m. Homecoming Festival at the field house with food trucks, a DJ, karaoke, a rock climbing wall, and more.

No Homecoming would be complete without alumni reunions, and LTU’s 2021 event is no exception. Special events are planned for milestone classes of years ending in 1 and 6—along with the class of 2020, which didn’t get its first Homecoming last fall due to the pandemic.

On Friday, there’s a 2 p.m. Alumni Welcome Back program at the Marburger Auditorium in the LTU Science Building, featuring LTU campus leaders and the latest news on new programs and facilities on campus, followed by a cocktail reception at 4 p.m. at the Taubman Student Services Center. Tickets are $25 and reservations are required. Visit https://www.ltu.edu/alumni/reunion.asp for more information.

Unfortunately, Saturday's scheduled noon football game has been cancelled, due to health concerns. A Saturday morning tailgate reunion is still planned from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. in Parking Lots F and J at www.ltu.edu/map. Following is a season-opening men's basketball game against Point Park University at 1 p.m. at the field house. Events to follow include a 5 p.m. women's volleyball game against the University of Northwestern Ohio at the field house, and a pair of hockey games at the Farmington Hills Ice Arena, 35500 Eight Mile Road in Farmington Hills. LTU's American Collegiate Hockey Association Division III squad will take on Adrian College at 5 p.m., while the ACHA Division I team will take on Aquinas College at 8 p.m.
