Homecoming 2010 certainly celebrated the Knight Life. From the King and Queen competition and the Matt Nathanson concert to the St. John Neumann Circle dedication and a Hall of Fame induction, this year’s version of “coming home to your alma mater” was filled with activities.
Below are some of the scenes that stood out during the four days of celebration

Approximately 700 people turned out for the Matt Nathanson concert.
Before the concert, students flocked outside to watch a fireworks show.
The free Knight Life t-shirts were wildly popular.
