Healthy at Home(coming) – October 26-31
We invite Racer alumni all over the globe to celebrate Homecoming with us throughout the week of October 26-31. From Tent City to campus tours and trivia to wine tasting, the Murray State Office of Alumni Relations, in collaboration with the Campus Activities Board and Racer Athletics, is organizing a robust schedule of virtual, in-person and hybrid activities!
In a nod to the state of Kentucky’s Healthy at Home initiative to slow the spread of COVID-19, the University is coining the phrase “Healthy at Home(coming).” Any planned in-person activities will follow the University’s Racer Safe and Healthy Guidelines and others will be reimagined virtually in a way that allows for participation wherever alumni call home. The theme this year is “We are Racers.”
As time, location, expense and travel provide no limitations to the celebration this year, Homecoming 2020 provides us with the unique opportunity to engage with alumni all over the world. Even time-honored traditions like Tent City and Friday night Greek gatherings will be re-envisioned virtually, with perhaps a few surprises.
More events will be added as details become available. Events scheduled thus far include (subject to change):
