Lee Singers, Alpha Gamma Chi to Celebrate 60 Years at LU Homecoming

Cleveland, TN–Lee University’s 2023 Homecoming weekend is set for Nov. 3-4. Thousands of students, alumni, faculty, and staff will gather on campus for a weekend of highlights, including the 60th anniversaries of the Lee Singers and Alpha Gamma Chi, both founded in 1963.

This year’s Homecoming will feature classic events, such as the Homecoming parade and the Grand Reunion, and it will also celebrate additional milestone anniversaries, such as the Class of 1973’s 50th and Epsilon Lambda Phi’s 35th.

“I am excited to welcome all our alums to Homecoming 2023,” said Dr. Brad Moffett, vice president for University Relations. “The weekend will be full of events celebrating major anniversaries, connecting with friends, cheering on the Flames and Lady Flames, and enjoying Lee’s beautiful campus in the fall. I am especially looking forward to the 60th anniversaries of the Lee Singers and Alpha Gamma Chi. Both have a special place in my heart.”

There are dozens of events planned for the busy weekend, beginning with check-in on Friday morning. Registering alumni will receive a Homecoming 2023 T-shirt as well as other event-related items. Registration is also open on Saturday.

Friday’s events will include the 1918 Society Alumni Golf Tournament and Shenanigans improv show. Throughout the afternoon, alumni can reunite with professors and peers at the various department dessert receptions. In the evening, the Pedestrian Mall will host the Grand Reunion, while Flames athletics fans can cheer on their alma mater and support an important cause at the annual Volley for a Cure volleyball match.

Friday’s festivities will close with a Lee Theatre production of “It’s a Wonderful Life: A Live Radio Play,” Lee Singers and Alpha Gamma Chi reunion receptions, and the Shenanigans show.

On Saturday, the school, department, and Greek service club breakfasts will take place. There will be a tailgate party, Flame Fair, and the Homecoming Parade before the Flames women’s and men’s basketball teams preview their seasons with exhibition games at 12:00 noon and 2:00 pm, respectively. At halftime of the men’s game, the 2023 Homecoming Court will be presented.

In the evening, Traditions of Lee will honor Lee’s events, clubs, and programs that have stood the test of time. Features will include performances from several of Lee’s music ensembles and the Lee Singers Reunion Choir, along with recognition of the 30th anniversary of the Ellis Hall fire. Ellis was a Lee men’s dormitory destroyed by fire on November 4, 1993.

Final events on Saturday are a second “It’s a Wonderful Life” production and the Class of 1973’s reunion for its 50th anniversary.

“Homecoming is almost here, and I am so excited to see campus full of alumni!” said Taylor Smith, director of Alumni Relations. “It’s going to be an incredible weekend full of celebrations and reminiscing on all that makes Lee so special.”
