Homecoming

Traditionally, Homecoming is a time for the Highlander family to come back to campus. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, this year we hosted a weeklong virtual celebration.

Alumni, students, parents and families, staff, faculty, and friends of the university were invited to participate in a week full of activities, from the comfort of home. If you missed it, check out some of the recorded sessions or videos highlighting campus hotspots and new construction.
