The 70th anniversary homecoming party was held this past Saturday by The Columbus School in order to strengthen the relationship between its alumni and the school itself, hosting more than 500 people.

A homecoming is a big event where graduates meet up to have a good time, and many times, like it was priorly stated, strengthen the relationship between them and the school. TCS graduates generally feel this connection is somewhat or completely lost, now that they have been out of school for a while and they have moved on with their lives. However some people wish to fight to continue to maintain these old, yet valuable relationships. 

“It is important to keep a good connection with the institution… Through the alumni, the culture and the values of the school are maintained, we are the legacy of TCS.” Christian Toro, TCS alumni, said.

The event was a way to recollect information about the students, that after all the years, had been lost. TCS is trying to emphasize alumni by actually showing it cares for them and feels graduates are a big part of the school.

“We [TCS] are aiming to collect information about alumni and a homecoming party is the perfect way to do so. This party will give us enough information to have a database specifically for alumni,” Lina Restrepo, Marketing Analyst at TCS, said.

So, did homecoming at The Columbus School with more than 500 people present get the job done? Was it able to gather information and strengthen the somewhat “lost” relationship with its alumni?

“Our love for the school isn’t totally lost, in my opinion; this homecoming party and everything else TCS is doing to reconnect with the graduates is a beautiful labor. It’s wonderful to have all these people here,” Rita Parra said.

All those years in school are impossible to forget. Alumni, show this is true judging by the number of people present in the huge event. People who graduated 50 years ago, 20 years ago, and 5 years ago were able to come to school one more time to have a marvelous night in the institution that helped them be who they are today.

“My time at The Columbus School was amazing. Life out of school becomes much harder and you keep picturing what your life could be like if you were still in school. TCS played a big role in my life, and it is impossible to forget,” Samuel McEwen, TCS alumni, said.
