As more snow blanketed campus, alumni and families made their way back to Mount St. James for Winter Homecoming on Feb. 15.

Morning activities provided an opportunity to shake off the winter doldrums. The Hart Center hosted a family swim and skate that featured a lot of splashing, slipping and sliding. The Crusader showed up to greet fans and pose for pictures.

For those preferring more cerebral exercise, Sharon Matys, a designer in the College’s Graphic Arts department, led a group of 12 alumni and family members, in a one-hour Zentangle workshop. Zentangle, also called yoga for the brain, is a form of artistic meditation. Matys taught the group five basic drawing strokes which they transformed into miniature masterpieces.

The annual Legacy Luncheon was attended by more than 250 alumni who proudly share the Holy Cross tradition with a grandparent, parent or sibling. Fellow classmates along with their family members pored over yearbooks and spent time catching up and making new friends. James F. Mooney III ’90, partner of The Baupost Group, L.L.C., a Holy Cross Trustee and son of James F. Mooney Jr. ’52, was the guest speaker.

In the afternoon, two professional groups held receptions. The Alumni Educators group featured talks by Heather Johnson ’06, director of the Holy Cross Teacher Education Program, and Trevor Bonat ’96,
principal of Bishop Brady High School located in Concord, N.H. The Holy Cross Lawyers Association gathered to learn and network with alumni colleagues.

The day also included an aptly timed wellness session titled “Emerging from Cabin Fever” conducted by Fran Taylor, director of Wellness Programming. Attendees were taught to set achievable goals for the upcoming spring season and to focus on self-care.

“Fran offered realistic and practical recommendations, such as reframing our thoughts to be positive and setting smaller, more achievable goals,” said participant Laura Cutone ’96.

The Homecoming crowd witnessed two out of three home game wins. Women’s ice hockey triumphed over Manhattanville by a score of 3-2 and women’s basketball claimed a 76-68 triumph over Lehigh, while UConn defeated the men’s hockey team, 5-0.
