Members of the Andrews University community are invited to take part in two Andrews traditions—the Alumni Homecoming Parade and International Flag-Raising Ceremony, which take place every year during Alumni Homecoming Weekend. Whether you are simply proud of your international roots, have studied abroad, served as a missionary outside the U.S. or are currently part of our international student body, we invite you to participate in both of these meaningful Alumni Homecoming events on Friday, Sept. 24. You're welcome and encouraged to bring your friends and family to participate.

  1. Carry your flag in the Alumni Homecoming Parade, which will organize at 4:15 p.m. in the Andrews Academy parking lot. The parade starts moving promptly at 4:50 p.m.
  2. Lineup for the flag raising ceremony begins immediately following the parade and is organized on the International Flag Mall between the library and PMC. Those who carried their flag in the parade are encouraged to also raise their flag on the campus mall. If you are only participating in the flag raising ceremony, please come pick up your flag at the base of the main steps of the library at 6 p.m. The ceremony starts at 6:30 p.m.

Please keep in mind that flag-bearers do not need to be natives of the specific country. Also, if you have international dress, you are invited to wear it for both occasions.
