More space was added to provide a new computer room and curriculum room, as well as new conference rooms and offices. The new library addition was funded by the Reaching Out Program.

Comics on Campus Homecoming 1986 took place during the week of October 6-11. This year's theme was comic strip characters and therefore Marvin, Garfield, and Charlie Brown could be seen on campus all week. The campus was full of excitement as the students participated in the various activities. On Friday night the annual pep fest was led by the class Spirit Leaders. The Saturday festivities were once again started with the Homecoming parade marching down the streets of New Ulm. New to this year's activities was the soccer game against Northwestern College. The Lancers made a valiant football effort in the "Mud Bowl" game against Northwestern College. The Homecoming Banquet and an evening of entertainment hosted by Connie Kroll and Steve Towne ended the exciting week. The Juniors accepted both the powder puff and the 1986 Spirit Award.

She teaches the children and refines the barbarous aspects of the Siamese culture. Alan Uher, director of this year's musical. was assisted by producer, Tracey Kriewall. Choreographers were Lorna Fenske and Linda Schapekahm, while Prof. Roger Hermanson and Marianne Petermann handled the musical portion of the production. The musical was a success for all involved.
