#StayHomecoming Is a Virtual Hit

Though we were unable to enjoy a traditional homecoming this year, alumni and friends got a kick out of #StayHomecoming.

Like so many UMW traditions, Homecoming 2020, Oct. 19-24, was a very different event this year. It even got its own hashtag, #StayHomecoming, with all events online. Participants joined fellow alumni and Eagles #BackInTheBurg, virtually, for the following events:

  • College of Education/Alumni Educators affinity group
  • College of Business young alumni networking
  • Between Two Ficuses young alumni video series kickoff
  • Kahoot! Trivia with UMW Alumni (Mary Wash theme!)
  • MaryWash memorabilia with Dean Rucker
  • Fredericksburg network virtual beer tasting with Adventure Brewing
  • Bartending and tailgate food tips

Throughout the week, the Alumni Association put out social media initiatives, including contests for some big prizes. Those on Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter did not miss out!
