Is St. Edward's Still Hosting a Homecoming?
Yes, but in a virtual format! St. Edward’s University Homecoming 2021 has now been moved to a week-long virtual celebration from Sun., Feb. 21 –Sun., Feb. 28. While we understand that this is not the same as an in-person Homecoming, the safety and health of all Hilltoppers is our highest concern. Although this year will be different by not being on the hilltop, we hope you will still join us for a week full of virtual festivities to celebrate and reconnect with St. Edward’s.
What Does a Virtual Homecoming Look Like?
While we are sad that we will not be able to gather in person, we are excited to offer a virtual celebration featuring St. Edward’s Homecoming signature events and activities you can enjoy with classmates and friends around the world without leaving the comfort of your living room! A variety of live-streamed and virtual events and activities are being planned, view the complete schedule here.
