Blue skies and crisp fall weather were the backdrop for thousands of Montclair State University students, alumni, families, and friends who turned out on October 13 to celebrate Homecoming 2012.

The day was full of events and activities including alumni reunions, campus tours, the Student Showcase, and even a pancake breakfast for first-year students and their families. A highlight of the day was the Homecoming football game, which this year was played against The College of New Jersey. The Red Hawks didn’t disappoint the home crowd and won the game 24 - 14.

The chilly morning gave way into a beautiful fall day adding to the festive atmosphere that could be felt everywhere. It was a day filled with smiles, laughter, fun and community spirit, and will go down as a truly memorable Homecoming.
