Homecoming for Our Alumni

Homecoming is always an exceptionally amazing time of year at Howard University – it is when our alumni come home. We welcomed our architecture and engineering alumni with a warm reception following Saturday’s homecoming football game.

CEA alumni chatted with their former classmates, reminiscing about their joy-filled days at Howard University. The memories created here, the relationships and the bonding with classmates are truly unique, they commented.

Architecture alumna Laurette LeGendre was the only female in her original class of ‘77. Accompanied and fully supported by her former classmates, Donald G. Hudson, Jr. (B.Arch. ‘77) and William M. Brown (B.Arch. ‘77), LeGendre shared her story.

Daughter of an architect and originally from New Jersey, LeGendre was convinced by her father that architecture would be her path. Her father was determined that she would study architecture at Howard University, as it was the best architecture program around!

LeGendre recalls the distinguished pressure from her professors and the support of her classmates that helped her succeed. “I stayed because of students like them,” LeGendre added, as she pointed to Hudson and Brown.

Another one of our alumni, proud father and electrical engineering alumnus Charles W. Robinson (B.S.E.E. ‘93) has created a CEA family of his own by bringing two of his offspring back to the college to study electrical engineering and computer science!

The joy we experienced as we hosted our alumni is unexplainable. We hope to see more of them!

We appreciate our alumni!
