The Menlo College campus was a whirlwind of activity for Homecoming weekend, September 30 - October 1. On Friday, students, faculty, and staff enjoyed an Oak-toberfest Carnival and Powder Puff game on the Quad, followed by a Homecoming Bonfire later that evening. Saturday, future students and their families toured campus during a Homecoming Open House, then joined the campus community for a tailgate party and the big game.
