It is Homecoming and Family Weekend at Calvin College and the students are creating some new traditions.

At Calvin's Alumni Relations, Emily Dock tells WOOD Radio about a cardboard canoe race, a Dutch pole vault into a pond, and camping-out in the college President's back yard.

Michael LeRoy even will read them a bed-time story and cook a pancake breakfast.

Dock figures this is the kind of "bonding" thing that will bring alumni back to the campus years from now.
