Blue Jays Forever

From face painting to class banner waving—and even some sword swallowing—thousands displayed all manner of Blue Jay spirit at Alumni Weekend 2012, held May 4 to 6.

Homecoming featured more than 70 events this year, including Saturday’s new Hullabalooza, a late-night dance party with live music and a “glow bar” under a tent on the Decker Quad. Earlier in the day, the 50th and 25th reunion classes led an all-class march to Homewood Field for the men’s lacrosse game vs. Army. The Blue Jays soundly defeated the Black Knights, 13-6, a victory that lifted Johns Hopkins to a No. 2 seed in the 2012 NCAA Men’s Lacrosse Tournament.

With numbers still coming in, an estimated 6,000 people attended Alumni Weekend.
