“We really enjoy the fun and excitement of Homecoming weekend — the Homecoming BBQ and basketball games, meeting faculty members, and seeing the pride everyone has in St. Edward’s,” said Lori and Gerald Llorence, parents of Gerald ’13. “We hope to make it to Casino Night this year. We heard it was great! Most of all, we enjoy the welcoming sense of family on campus.”
