Virtual Homecoming 2020: November 6 - 8!
Dear Alumni and Friends,
We are writing to share an update regarding planned celebrations for Homecoming 2020, scheduled for November 6-8. After careful thought and consideration for the safety of both the university community and our guests, it has been decided that Homecoming 2020 will go virtual, followed by more robust in-person programming at Homecoming 2021.
It's simply not prudent to physically gather for Homecoming this year on campus, due to the COVID-19 pandemic. While we are disappointed to have to postpone our celebrations, our desire to ensure the health and safety of our alumni and the campus community is at the forefront of this decision.
This November, we are committed to providing you with fun and engaging digital programming that connects you to your classmates, colleges, teams, ensembles and organizations that make Stetson your home. Now more than ever, we are grateful for the numerous and exciting ways to connect remotely.
Class Reunions, including the 50th Reunion for the Class of 1970, will be hosted virtually, with more information to come soon. We are eager to work with members of these classes to bring the community together, while physically apart. These classes will also be celebrated in person next year, during Homecoming 2021.
We will also find a new way to host the President's Champagne Breakfast and Alumni Awards program with virtual programming, while also celebrating award winners in person in 2021.
Though we'll miss seeing you in person, we look forward to the creative and innovative ways in which we can stay connected. Be sure to keep in touch with the Stetson University Alumni Association on Facebook, and stay tuned to our calendar and weekly emails as we introduce more webinars and other digital events throughout the summer and fall. We welcome your event ideas at firstname.lastname@example.org.
As the administration at Stetson University and members of the Safer Campus Task Force meet to make strategic decisions about resuming campus activities, please continue to monitor Stetson.edu/Covid-19 for the latest information.
With prayers for the health and safety of our entire community,
The Office of Alumni and Parent Engagement
