It was a Virtual Homecoming like you’ve never seen before!

But then…when have you ever seen one?
Posted October 01, 2021

For the entire month of October, there were virtual contests, academic division gatherings, online engagement events, trivia and performances to keep the Emory & Henry community connected in light of the COVID-19 pandemic. Homecoming became Stay Home-coming with lots of virtual events to entertain and connect.

“Alumni had opportunities to connect with Emory & Henry faculty, the president, other alumni and students,” says Monica Hoel, alumni director at Emory & Henry College. “I believe some of these events will become new traditions in order to give alumni a chance to engage who don’t normally get to travel to campus.”

Unique contests to celebrate Homecoming included finding the oldest piece of Emory & Henry swag, the best at-home tailgate setup, and the Fur-Ever Alumni Pet Contest. Other celebrations included virtual cocktail parties, 10-minute theatre performances by E&H students, a virtual trip to France, career networking, the Global Street Party, shopping at the bookstore, and a town hall meeting with President Wells.
