Newberry College plans to host an in-person Homecoming celebration during the weekend of October 22 – 24, 2021. To maintain the health and safety of the College community and its guests, Newberry College requires all students, faculty, staff and guests to wear face coverings inside College buildings. Masks may be removed while eating or drinking, and while outdoors where social distancing can be maintained. COVID-19 vaccinations are not required on campus, but are strongly encouraged. As the campus continues to navigate COVID-19, Homecoming and reunion celebration plans will be made with the safety of our students and campus community in mind and will be adjusted accordingly.
