Homecoming Festivities October 8-11

Oct 5th , 2020

As a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, Midland University’s homecoming will have a different look in 2020. Homecoming festivities are set for October 8-11 at Midland and although several events have been altered or postponed, the university is working hard to ensure that alumni and current students will still have a memorable Homecoming experience.

Larger events, such as in-person reunions, Hall of Fame banquet, and Alumni and Legacy Awards luncheon, have been postponed until October of 2021. Hall of Fame and Alumni recipients will be honored at that time and milestone anniversaries for reunion classes will be celebrated as well. 

While those traditional events have been put on hold for a year, there will be plenty of activities, both in person and virtually, for attendees to enjoy over the weekend. The weekend kicks off with four performances of “Picnic” by Midland University Performing Arts, beginning on Thursday, October 8th at Kimmel Theatre. The performances will also be available via livestream at midlandperformingarts.org/events.

The Alumni & Friends Drive-Thru Tailgate will be held Saturday, October 10th from 11:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. in the Anderson parking lot. There will be free food, entertainment, and giveaways with First State Bank & Trust serving as the event sponsor. The tailgate will be followed by the Warriors taking on Hastings College in the annual Homecoming football game at 1 p.m. at Heedum Field. The Warrior swimming and diving team will also be in action that day with a 4 p.m. meet at the Dillon Aquatic Center at the Fremont YMCA. The Midland volleyball team takes to the court against Dordt College at 5 p.m. at the Wikert Event Center. All sporting events are available on livestream at portal.stretchinternet.com/midland/.

Worship service is set for Sunday, October 11th at Sinai Lutheran Church. A link with a special worship message for Midland alumni and friends will be provided on the Midland University Alumni website at alumni.midlandu.edu/homecoming2020

Other virtual events will be taking place throughout the weekend. For a complete list of events, as well as ticket and registration information, visit alumni.midlandu.edu/homecoming2020.
