Boyer Alumni came together on Friday, October 10, 2014 to celebrate the arts at Homecoming. The 2nd annual “Toast to the New Season” reception for Boyer College alumni immediately followed the Boyer Mosaic Concert.  The “Toast to the New Season” celebration offered Boyer alumni an opportunity to come back to campus, reminisce with former classmates, greet faculty and current students and hear a wonderful performance in the beautiful, vibrant Temple Performing Arts Center (formerly the Baptist Temple).



 Past Events

Throughout the year several events are held to bring alumni together – to learn, to socialize, to reminisce.  Enjoying performances that showcase the talent of current students, expanding the understanding of a specific piece of work or simply coming back together on the Temple campus, alumni have many opportunities to reconnect.  ___________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________
