Although we are deeply disappointed that we will not be able to honor our annual in-person homecoming weekend, we believe if we make the necessary sacrifices now, we hope to be able to see everyone next year, with even more anticipation, excitement, and enthusiasm.  We know that you'll love what we've got in store for our Virtual Homecoming Weekend.
