Home, they say, is where the heart is. And for the many alumni who came back to campus for Homecoming, the experience was a mix of emotions, catching up, having fun and taking in how much their alma mater has grown over the years.

Throughout the day, alumni and their guests also got to join a mix of activities including Masterclasses, a student-led theatre production and the climax, a football match between Alumni and Student, that also served as the inaugural game for the Ashesi Sports Centre.
As part of the day’s activities, the Storyteller’s club performed ‘Romeo must die’; a Berekuso rendition of Romeo and Juliet with a hint of comedy
Easily one of the highlights of the event, Romeo Must Die connected the plot between Shakespeare’s famous love tragedy and love set in the town of Berekuso

As light showers graced the day’s festivities, alumni were not deterred from exploring the ongoing homecoming activities
What better way to hand over our new student center, ‘The Hive’, than in the presence of Ashesi alumni, students and friends. The space consists of meeting rooms for students, offices for student leadership, cafeterias, and our very own campus radio station.
Homecoming ended with a friendly football match between alumni and students. At the end of the game, the student team came up top as the homecoming reigning champs for 2018.
It was a pleasure to see the smiles, laughter and overall positivity that marked homecoming as alumni run into their old roommates, classmates and friends once again. Over the years, Ashesi’s alumni community has grown to over 1,200 members. Homecoming gave the community an opportunity to reconnect with one another, engage with the current Ashesi community and with Ashesi.
