A new spin on a tradition dating back to 1928.

Homecoming 2020 Announcement

Homecoming is about just that, coming home. It’s a coming together of alumni… of family. Through generations we see that no matter when we came to McMurry, we’re family, connected, a part of something bigger than ourselves. Like every year, the health, safety and well-being of all our Homecoming participants and our greater McMurry community are our highest priorities. It is because of these priorities that we have made the very difficult decision to announce a change from the traditional in-person event-driven Homecoming format, to a weeklong virtual celebration for Homecoming 2020.

Although it was certainly not an easy decision, we believe it is the right one.

McMurry’s Homecoming attracts hundreds of alumni and their guests from around the country every year, as public health guidelines continue to emphasize social distancing, minimal close contact, limitations on group sizes, along with the governor’s recent mandate regarding the wearing of masks, our ability to provide the experience we know our alumni count on us delivering is limited.

We know that while many of you will support our decision, it is likely to cause much disappointment among our alumni family. We had remained hopeful this would not be necessary, but at this point we want to ensure that the same measures we take to protect our students and campus community are in place for our alumni.

Alumni Relations is actively exploring virtual programming, along with several stakeholder groups across campus and alumni leadership, to help continue the spirit of Homecoming in October. Events related to this new format for 2020 are in the early stages of planning, and updates will be provided as soon as possible.

Kimberly Tate '07, President of the McMurry Alumni Association, said, "Virtual Homecoming is a wonderful opportunity to keep the McMurry spirit alive for all of the McMurry community, in the comfort and safety of their own home, regardless of where they are in the world. Participants can look forward to a host of different events on digital platforms that will put a twist on the traditional experience, while allowing us to continue to engage with fellow alumni, as well as support and celebrate McMurry."

As we continue prioritizing the health and safety of our community and alumni above all else, we look forward to a time when we can all be together again and celebrate our memories, our connections, and our university.

Shifting the Homecoming 2020 format is a part of McMurry’s larger COVID-19 response, which is online at
