Homecoming 2016 Went
Beyond the BISONtennial

From the reopening of the infamous Bison’s Den to the Class of
1966 reunion, Homecoming 2016 was a weekend not to be missed.
Here’s a recap of our most memorable events:

To kick off the Class of ‘66’s reunion, the Golden Bison Reception,
which took place in Fels Student Center, featured the awarding of
the 50th reunion medallions to the newest members of the Golden
Bison by President Susan West Engelkemeyer. In addition, Phil
Collins ’66 received the Ken Thompson Service Award from the
Alumni Association Board of Directors.

The Alumni Legacy Dinner was the setting for more alumni awards.
Alumni Board President Bill O’Connell ’78 explained the importance
of the Legacy Award, and board member Bernie Gagnon ’82 MBA ’88
presented this award to John White ’71 MBA ’78. White’s daughters and
their husbands – all Nichols Alumni – along with his wife were honored to
watch him receive this award. Melanie Fleming, assistant professor of
accounting, presented the Honorary Alumna Award to Mary Hoey, the
parent of Patrick ’15, Sean ’16, and Catherine ’18, and the wife of Rob
Hoey ’84 MBA ’01, for being a part of the Nichols family as a Legacy member.

To conclude Friday evening, the grand reopening of the Bison’s
Den was a perfect end to the evening. Memorabilia, live music, and the
best domestics on tap made for a perfect night.

A rainy morning on Saturday didn’t stop the Bison from having fun.
A 5K stampede kick started the day, followed by a Hall of Fame Brunch
in Daniels Auditorium. After brunch, Alumni joined in family activities and
tailgating fun.

Despite the loss of Nichols football against Western New England, the
classes of 1966, 2001, and 2016 showed their Bison pride by marching
on the field at halftime.

Homecoming 2016 is a fond memory for all who attended. Everyone
enjoyed their time, reconnected with friends, and hopefully made
plans to visit again next year for Homecoming 2017 on September
29th and 30th.

An inspirational challenge

NC May14 432

During the public phase of the Bicentennial Campaign, the college hopes to increase the number of endowed scholarships from 30 to at least 45.  John Davis ’72, chairman of the Board of Trustees and co-chair of the campaign, has recently committed $1 million to scholarship, a portion of which will be used to inspire – and challenge – donors to reach our goal.

Here’s how it works: A commitment of at least $25,000 is needed to endow a scholarship. This can be paid all at once or over a maximum period of five years. Either way, the fund will not generate enough income to award that scholarship until about a year after the $25,000 is paid in full. So, in some cases, it could take five or six years. John Davis is challenging donors to commit to endowing a scholarship for at least $25,000 before the close of the campaign in June 2017. For each scholarship created, he will donate $10,000 to ensure that a $2,000 scholarship can be distributed to a deserving student in the donor’s name right away, for a maximum of five years or until the commitment is paid in full.

Contact Bill Pieczynski at or 866-622-4766 to begin leaving your legacy with an endowed scholarship today.
