Grainger Hall and its courtyard were a bustle of activity for Homecoming festivities on Oct. 30. Business Badgers and Badgers fans of all ages came together for music, breakfast, conversation, games, face-painting, and other family-friendly activities. A special guest appearance by Bucky Badger was, as ever, a highlight of the event and the perfect chance for alumni to get their photo taken with the big guy. The bash was back after a year away, offering a welcome chance for Business Badgers to connect again.
