Eagles reconnect and celebrate for Homecoming 2021 

For the first time in two years, Eagle students, faculty and staff, along with Eagle alumni and friends of the University from across the country, will be returning to campus to reconnect at MSU Homecoming 2021.  

Homecoming 2021 will celebrate all things MSU through numerous events and activities from Oct. 15 through Oct. 16. Before the Homecoming Weekend, the Campus Activities Board (CAB) will be sponsoring several Homecoming-related activities for faculty, staff and students in anticipation of the arrival of many Eagles eager to show their support for the blue and gold.    

“Homecoming is the most exciting time of the year for alumni. Eagles from every generation return to campus to relive memories from the ‘good old days,’ reconnect with former classmates and interact with today’s students,” said Mindy Highley (Class of 1991, 1993), assistant vice president for alumni relations and development. “This year’s schedule is packed full of activities, and we anticipate that many alumni will come home for a weekend of Eagle excitement.”
