Homecoming Weekend, Oct. 16-18, 2020

We can still stay connected, even though homecoming events have been significantly cut back or cancelled due to the coronavirus pandemic. While five-year reunions for classes ending in 0 and 5 are not taking place, class coordinators are contacting their class about alternative plans.
