NEWBERRY, S.C. (courtesy newberry.edu) — To limit the presence of off-campus visitors and reduce the risk of the spread of illness, Newberry College has announced that this year’s Homecoming celebration will move online. Additionally, all scheduled in-person reunions associated with the event have been postponed.
The virtual events will take place Oct. 12-18.
“We miss our alumni being on campus,” said Whitney Metz, assistant vice president for institutional advancement. “This was a tough decision to make, but we know that the changes we make this year will lead to one of the best and most anticipated celebrations next year.”
In lieu of the in-person celebration, the Newberry College Alumni Association will hold virtual events and reconnection opportunities. These include social activities, remote reunion gatherings, opportunities to hear from leading alumni and faculty, and more.
Alumni registration will be held online, and participation will be free of charge. More details will be announced as soon as they are available.
