One can will get you 10 percent off, two cans will get you 20 percent off and three cans will get you 30 percent off. If you bring six cans to Harrington Place Dining on Feb. 20, you can eat breakfast or lunch for FREE!
In celebration of T-Shirt Tuesday, students can pick up their Homecoming 2017 logo t-shirt in the Gabhart Student Center, Room A, from 9:30 a.m. - 3:30 p.m. It is also Student Organization Day, so wear your ORG shirts and show your pride. Anyone wearing a Belmont t-shirt, can receive a special dessert at the Dining Hall.
In the spirit of service to our community, we ask everyone including students, faculty and staff to consider donating a gently used clothing item on Tuesday to HOPE for Domestic Violence. Donated clothing items may be dropped off in the Gabhart Student Center, Room A, at the t-shirt pick-up locale.
You never know what could happen next. WOW Wednesday will feature multiple surprise pop-up events throughout the day. Be looking for special giveaways, promotions, competitions and more.

Together We Serve
Throughout February as part of Homecoming 2017, we will be collecting canned food items to donate to Second Harvest Food Bank. Bring your donations to the Foutch Alumni House (by the Bell Tower), during normal working hours. Most needed items are: peanut butter, canned meat (tuna/chicken), canned fruit & vegetables, soups & stews, pasta & cereal. Join us as we work to fight hunger in our community.
Together We Are Belmont
We have all heard the saying, “there is strength in numbers,” which, by definition, is to say that a group of people has more influence or power than one person. The emotional and moral strength can be drawn from a group of people—individually, it is much more difficult to get things done. As Belmont University Alumni association President, I see this happening in every aspect of our university events and traditions. I hope that you, as Belmont alumni, will be willing to come together at Homecoming 2017, and let’s make this event one to remember for years to come. I look forward to seeing you in February. - Alumni Association President Janis Mitchell, Class of 1969
