More than 1,200 alumni, students, parents and friends gathered on October 19 at the Baker Athletics Complex on West 218th Street for Homecoming 2013, which included a gourmet barbecue and carnival under the Big Tent, music and mingling. The Cleverest Band in the World got the group singing and Roar-ee made an appearance as well, delighting the children in the game and inflatables areas.
The football game against the Penn Quakers had a 1:30 p.m. kickoff and at halftime, guests returned to the Big Tent to enjoy a dessert reception, sponsored for the third consecutive year by the Columbia Alumni Association. The Lions lost 21–7 to the Penn Quakers at Robert K. Kraft Field but the weather was perfect for football.
