Homecoming brings alumni, parents, friends to campus
This year's spectacular fall colors added an air of splendor to Baptist Bible College & Seminary's annual Homecoming activities.
Events for alumni, students, parents, and friends attracted hundreds of people to campus. Bible Conference and alumni activities ran from October 7 through October 11. Parents Day was October 11.
The theme for this year's Bible Conference - "No Reserves. No Retreats. No Regrets." - came from the words of William Borden. Heir to the dairy fortune with his family's now-famous name, Borden decided in college to commit his life to Christian service.
