Homecoming

Newberry College Homecoming @ Home

October 12 - 18, 2020

 

Since 1923, Newberry College Homecomings have welcomed back the Scarlet and Gray to celebrate what binds us together.

 

However, this year, to reduce the risk of the spread of illness, Newberry College will move Homecoming 2020 to a virtual event, and will postpone all scheduled class reunions.

 

This has been a difficult decision, but one made out of an abundance of care and caution for alumni, students, faculty and staff. This is part of the College's effort to reduce the presence of off-campus visitors, thereby reducing potential health risks. While we all would prefer to come together in person with handshakes, hugs and toasts, we can still reconnect and celebrate together, virtually.

 

More details are to come, but please mark your calendars for Newberry College Homecoming @ Home: October 12-18!

A lineup of virtual events hosted by the Newberry College Alumni Association and friends will be available virtually, including some of our most popular Homecoming events. Invite your loved ones to join you in celebrating a Homecoming unlike like any other. Most events will be open to all, while other events can be customized and exclusive to you and your classmates.

 

Will we still have a football game?
