Homecoming

Alma College cheer team runs in front of the crowd at Homecoming 2019.

Homecoming - A Whole New Way!

Join us the week of Oct. 5-11, 2020, as we celebrate Alma - and the lifelong memories and friendships that began on campus - in a whole new way.

This year we encourage alumni to stay home, stay safe and stay loyal as we celebrate Alma’s first-ever online Homecoming.

The schedule of online events extends over the entire week rather than the usual weekend only schedule. Alumni can bring Alma home by participating through the college’s website, Alumni Association Facebook page and other online web conferencing applications.

2020 Homecoming Schedule of Events

To assist with managing events and preventing event “hacking”, we ask alumni to please
