This year, EMU brought the party to you! The first-ever virtual Homecoming 2020 was hosted on behalf of 21,633 alums and even more friends around the world over the Oct. 15-18 weekend with 26 events to choose from.
More than 400 alumni and friends registered, with countless others watching on our Facebook livestream. The virtual format enabled viewers across all the U.S. time zones and in Canada, El Salvador, France, Germany and Japan to join in the fun!
We hope to see you next year, Oct. 8-10, 2021 for EMU Homecoming and Family Weekend.
