Over the weekend, students at the Moody Bible Institute attended Gnimocemoh, an annual gathering with a unique character.
Gnimocemoh (nee-mo-see-mo), or homecoming spelled backwards, was sponsored by the Moody Alumni Association and took place at the Moody Bible Institute campus in Chicago, Ill. While a more typical alumni homecoming is held in February during Founders Week, Gnimocemoh is designed to build relationships between the Alumni Association and the current student body.
Themed Short and Sweet, this years event ran only two days from Sept. 30 to Oct. 1, rather than the usual week. Kicking off the event with a pep rally on Friday morning, the energy level remained high as students cheered on their womens volleyball team in matches against fellow Christian schools and voted for the next Mr. Moody in the 3rd Annual Mr. Moody pageant.
Saturday was just as lively, with a 5K run around Lincoln Park at 8 a.m., volleyball and soccer games, and a scavenger hunt that took students all around the town. The day ended with a worship service and fellowship in the evening.
