Due to the inclement weather predicted by the media, the Bellevue College Homecoming Festival slated for Saturday, Oct. 15 has been postponed until a later date.

The festival was set to cap a week-long series of Homecoming events celebrating the college’s 50th Anniversary. And while the weather is proving uncooperative for Saturday, nothing has dampened the spirits of students and faculty who enjoyed a kick-off event on Monday with special proclamations read by the Mayors of Bellevue and Issaquah, a special Thriller dance session, a celebratory reception for “The Exceptional 50” recognizing the contributions of those who have helped make Bellevue College the third largest institution in Washington state, and a breakfast served up by BC’s president’s cabinet and interim president Dr. Jill Wakefield.
