    The Quest began on May 7, 2012 when 12 Gannon Knights took to the road to visit alumni all over the world. Their goal was to visit as many alumni as they could, sharing and documenting their day or special outing. You can follow the Knights on their journeys by going to We will celebrate their return to campus during Alumni Homecoming Reunion Weekend at the tailgate party on Saturday. Please join us to welcome them home and thank their alumni hosts.
