Reinhardt University’s Homecoming 2019 will be extended by two weeks after Cincinnati Christian University announced Wednesday that they will forfeit Saturday’s football game.
Most student festivities will continue as planned throughout this week, and the Born to Run 5K will commence in downtown Canton Nov. 2 at 8 a.m. (registration begins at 7 a.m.). Learn more at Reinhardt.edu/5K.
The Homecoming Tailgate, pre-game and halftime celebrations, including the presentation of Homecoming Court and crowning of King and Queen, will happen at the Nov. 16 football game versus Union College (Ky.) at 1:30 p.m. at Ken White Field at University Stadium. The last home game of the season also will feature Senior Day presentations. That evening, students will gather for the Homecoming Formal.
“Due to the unforeseen circumstances of Cincinnati Christian forfeiting Saturday’s game, we felt it was important to the students and alumni to reschedule the Homecoming Festivities for the next home football game,” said Dean of Students Walter May. “There will still be great sports action on campus this weekend, including Men’s Soccer Saturday and Men’s Lacrosse Sunday.”
At 3 p.m. Saturday, Men’s Soccer will take on Truett-McConnell in the first round of the Appalachian Athletic Conference Tournament at Ken White Field at University Stadium. Come back to campus Sunday at 4 p.m. as the Men’s Lacrosse team scrimmages Kennesaw State University.
