Following the theme "Magic in the Mountains," Young Harris College students, alumni and Mountain Lions fans will celebrate the home opener of the 2014-2015 basketball season with Homecoming, Friday-Saturday, Nov. 14-15. This exciting annual event will be presented in collaboration with the offices of Student Development and Alumni Services and the Department of Athletics.

Homecoming will kick off with the annual Homecoming parade on Saturday morning that will include a variety of student-created floats as well as local civic leaders and businesses.

Tailgating festivities and a celebratory pre-game picnic lunch catered by Atlanta’s world-famous drive-in The Varsity will follow for YHC students, alumni, faculty and staff. Tours of the new 121-square-foot Rollins Campus Center will take place and s'mores and face painting will be available for families at the new YHC Park.

The women’s basketball team will take on Brenau University at 1:30 p.m. and the men’s basketball team will play Temple Tennessee University at 3:30 p.m. in the YHC Recreation and Fitness Center.
