Eagle Strong Weekend Oct. 9-11, 2020

Eagle Family Homecoming is now
Eagle Strong Weekend!

Why the Change from Homecoming?

With no football game or in-person events to build a traditional homecoming around in 2020, we’re putting our plans on hold in hopes we can celebrate homecoming in the spring. Instead, we’re gathering virtually this fall for some fun, spirited activities to keep the Eagle family connected during Eagle Strong Week.

Event Schedule

Partners across campus are busy finalizing details for fun virtual events for students, staff, faculty, alumni and community members alike. Check back soon for more ways you can show your Eagle pride and stay connected to your fellow Eags. Together we are #EagleStrong!
