This year Ben Lippen is celebrating a rich 79-year history and marking 30 years in Columbia. Join us as we go Back to Ben Lippen for Homecoming 2019. We can’t promise a time machine, but we can guarantee a fun time reconnecting with old friends and classmates!
Friday, September 27 – Carnival, Tailgate Party & Varsity Football Game
5 – 7 p.m. | Homecoming Carnival & Alumni Tailgate
Join current families at Ben Lippen’s student-sponsored 80’s CARNIVAL! There will be food trucks, games, prizes, and treats. Then head over to the Baseball Pavilion to reconnect with former classmates, faculty, and staff at the Alumni Tailgate.
7 – 10 p.m. | Ben Lippen vs. Laurence-Manning
Kick-off is at 7:30, but you won’t want to miss the pregame tradition of singing the Alma Mater. This year we are honoring the Class of 1969 as they celebrate their 50th reunion, but we also have classes celebrating 40, 30, 20 years. Be sure to stay for the post-game fireworks.
Saturday, September 28 – School Tours & Alumni Gatherings
9:30 – 11 a.m. | School Tours
Many of our alumni have prayed and given to the Cultivate Campaign. We are excited to provide the opportunity for classes to meet at our new Arts and Science Center for campus tours and light refreshments with the headmaster.
Saturday afternoon and evening are reserved for individual class reunions. Please contact your class coordinator to inquire about plans.
*Events are free for registered alumni, alumni families, and former faculty, staff, and board members, but we must know who is coming!
This year we are celebrating the classes with years that end in 4’s and 9’s. Please encourage your classmates to attend! If you are willing to assist in planning or communication, email AlumniBLS@BenLippen.com. And don’t forget that if your class is having a reunion at a different time and place, we still want to help where we can.
Columbia International University has arranged a flat $77 room rate for Ben Lippen alumni at the Sleep Inn at Bush River Road in Columbia. Be sure to mention that you are connected to CIU/Ben Lippen to receive this special deal!
