With the theme, "The Golden Ticket," Homecoming 2010 will be a sweet celebration honoring Grand Valley's 50th anniversary.

Set for October 8-9, information and details about Homecoming events are posted online at www.gvsu.edu/homecoming.

The Lakers will host Northern Michigan at 7 p.m. on October 9. Several events are new this year:

• Expo and Pep Rally: Enjoy 50th birthday cake and sign the traveling birthday card in the Laker Turf Building on October 9. President Thomas J. Haas will provide welcoming remarks and introduce the Pioneer Class at 4 p.m.
