Homecoming 2020 events canceled at Presbyterian College

August 18, 2020

Events and activities for Homecoming 2020 at Presbyterian College have been canceled, the Alumni Relations Office has announced.

The announcement follows the postponement of fall sports at PC and other schools.

The Big South Conference last week announced the delay of its fall sports seasons with the intent of playing in the spring, calling the health and well-being of student-athletes its top priority and citing challenges posed by the coronavirus pandemic.

In an email to alumni, Alumni Relations Executive Director Leni Patterson ’83 wrote the office is deeply disappointed Homecoming Weekend festivities, reunions and events are canceled, though special communications will be sent to each reunion class.

Alumni Relations intends to celebrate these classes at Homecoming 2021. The office will also virtually honor the 2020 Alumni Award recipients in October and anticipates bringing them on campus for an in-person celebration in 2021.

Various virtual events are being planned to bring alumni together this fall. Alumni Relations plans to post a schedule of those events next month.
