Homecoming 2009

This year, our chapter and alumni board have decided to expand our programming for the weekend in the hopes of creating a new tradition for what to expect with LXA Homecomings in the future.

We really want to encourage and welcome our alumni to come back to campus year after year, reminisce about your time in the house, catch up with old friends, learn about the current chapter and continue to make new lasting connections with other alumni and current students. Our chapter has a long history at Cornell, and it is our alumni which make us stronger.
