Homecoming and Events
Important announcement about Homecoming 2021
Dear Wesleyan Alumni,
Out of an abundance of caution for our students, campus community, and alumni, we have decided to move Founders Day and Homecoming weekend to April 22-24, 2022. This decision comes after consultation with Alumni Council members and other alumni stakeholders after collectively reviewing these statistics and trends:
- West Virginia has the highest rate of COVID infection in the nation;
- Upshur County & Buckhannon has the highest rate of COVID infection in West Virginia
- Projections that the rate of COVID infections in WV will not likely peak until the week of Homecoming;
- The rate of breakthrough infections in Buckhannon, Upshur County, and among Wesleyan students; and
- The far below average number of registrations and the number of alumni who indicated are not going to attend Homecoming due to COVID concerns.
For those of you who have registered for Homecoming, we will be sharing information about refunds and April registration options shortly.
Within the next few weeks, we will be sharing our plans for Founders Day, class reunion events, and the entire Homecoming weekend schedule. Please watch your mailbox, email, and social media pages for additional information.
We are sorry for any inconvenience this schedule change may have caused, but look forward to having a great celebration of your return to campus April 22-24.
The Office of Development Staff
