Alumni also were an integral part of the festivities, as some former Sabers provided live entertainment. Other alumni, meanwhile, gathered together for mini reunions.

Saber graduates also conducted recognition ceremonies throughout the day to honor outstanding alumni and community supporters.

Current Campbell students also participated in the event, as the band, cheerleaders and Navy JROTC performed in the opening and recognition ceremonies.
