Homecoming and Reunions

Homecoming and Reunion Weekend is a chance for all Earlhamites to come together, renew friendships and celebrate the accomplishments of their classmates. We’re honored to host these events and look forward to seeing you each year!

Due to continuing concern over the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, and keeping with Earlham’s commitment to the health and safety of our students and campus, the College has decided to move the 2021 Homecoming and Reunion Weekend to a virtual format. 

We will continue to carefully monitor the pandemic over the next year, but we are optimistic that we can return to in-person programming in 2022.

2021 Homecoming and Reunion Weekend

Homecoming will take place as planned, September 30-October 3. A virtual format will provide exciting opportunities to plan for more inclusive programming and encourage connections with members of our global alumni network. An event platform will allow for a virtual homecoming weekend that is both meaningful and engaging in a completely online space, with our signature events including the Alumni-Student Connections Social, the Alumni Awards Ceremony, and In the Classroom with Earlham. The Wilderness 50th Reunion will also still take place in a virtual format. We will also continue working with alumni volunteers to help them create their virtual reunion activities.
