Last week the Big South made the decision to postpone fall sports. As a result, we have canceled our 2020 Homecoming festivities, reunions, and events. The Alumni Relations Office is working on various virtual events for this fall to bring our alumni together. We will be honoring virtually our 2020 Alumni Award recipients in October, and will bring them to campus for an in-person celebration in 2021. Watch for those special email announcements and social media posts.
