Dogwood Homecoming Weekend Postponed

March 12, 2020

With our alumni, students, faculty, staff, and community at the center of our concerns, we have decided to postpone Dogwood Homecoming Weekend activities scheduled for April 17-18, 2020, until our fall KingFest scheduled for October 30-31, 2020.

We have been closely monitoring the situation with the coronavirus (COVID-19), and following guidance from public health officials’ assessments. It is being encouraged to not have people come together in large groups, and with our focus of keeping people safe and healthy, we believe our best option is postponing.

We want to assure you we are taking significant measures to make this postponement as smooth as possible for our special Dogwood guests. Since many plans have already been made for the April dates, organizers are currently evaluating options and details with rescheduling. Please be patient with us as we rework all the events and activities. We will be communicating with you as soon as new details become available.

As we are disappointed with the postponement of the 2020 Dogwood Homecoming Weekend activities, we believe these significant precautionary measures adhering to recommendations from public health officials are essential for the health and safety of everyone involved.

Please save the dates of October 30-31, 2020, and watch for more information as soon as it becomes available. Again, thank you in advance for your patience.
