Homecoming & Family Weekend | CANCELLED!

Oct. 16-17, 2020.

Homecoming and Family Weekend (HFW) was scheduled to take place on Friday and Saturday, October 16-17, 2020.  This two day celebration was expected to bring over 4,000 people to our campus to participate in nearly 70 events.  The President’s Cabinet approved a recommendation to cancel Homecoming and Family Weekend in an effort to ensure proactive health and safety measure for current students as well as all of our guests who would return to campus.  Our next Homecoming and Family Weekend will take place in October of 2021 (date to be determined), but we plan to host two milestone reunions in the Spring of 2021 (50th reunion and 25threunion) as long as the PA Department of Health guidelines allow for gatherings.  If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to contact Jay McClymont at jmcclymont@messiah.edu .

Our Young Alumni Reunion celebrates the Classes of 2010-2020.  All graduates of the last decade are invited to join us from 7:00-11:00 p.m. on Friday, October 16th at ABC in Harrisburg, for heavy hors d'oeuvres and live music as we welcome the Class of 2020 into the alumni community! 

WHAT IS A CLUSTER REUNION?  While the primary focus will be on the milestone class year, members of the class above and below will be invited to share in the celebration!  We recognize that many of our alumni have spouses or friends in adjoining classes and therefore, combining three class reunions will hopefully encourage alumni who were part of the same major, organization or athletic team to get together and enjoy all that Homecoming weekend has to offer! 

This year we are pleased to host the following cluster reunions:

  • 40-Year (Classes of 1979, 1980, 1981)
  • 30-Year (Classes of 1989, 1990, 1991)
  • 20-Year (Classes of 1999, 2000, 2001)
  • 15-Year (Classes of 2004, 2005, 2006)
