Homecoming & Reunion Co-Chairs

Why I am excited to attend this year’s HC&R...The people. That's why I love going to Homecoming. Oh, and the All-Alumni Party. Love that too! #BlueGreyintheSky

— Melissa Kidonakis ’07

Why I am excited to attend this year’s HC&R...The friendships that start at O-Week at Rice can and do last a lifetime. Just this past summer, seven of us from Jones ’90 celebrated 29 years since O-Week at Sunset Beach in North Carolina.
