Hampton University features Homecoming plans for "Homecoming-Ish"
It's Homecoming season at our "Home by the Sea" and, as the unprecedented circumstances we've experienced in 2020 have had a severe impact on our ability to gather at our historic campus, we want you to know that your presence is missed. As an alumni, you are a living part of the Hampton legacy, and we look forward to welcoming you back each year. Even though, for the safety of all involved, we cannot physically gather, we invite you to join us, virtually, for Homecoming 2020.
We've got a full list of events taking place October 19-25 to help celebrate our legacy as Hamptonians and keep Hampton moving forward.
You'll hear from several prominent alumni, get updates on the State of the University, see your favorite Greek organizations battle for the top prize in the Stomp Wars Step Show, experience our first virtual Alumni Hip Hop Concert and more!
In addition, we're introducing our newest Homecoming tradition: the Come Back, Give Back Alumni Homecoming Challenge. This challenge aims to raise $100,000 for our "Home by the Sea" during our Homecoming celebration October 19-25. The event comes at a time when it has become more important than ever to work together to ensure Hampton continues in its mission of preparing promising students for positions of leadership and service.
We look forward to seeing you virtually, starting October 19.
