Mark your calendars for Homecoming 2021! This year’s theme, “There’s no place like home,” celebrates the return to a long awaited tradition. Students are excited to be back on campus, attending classes with their peers, and experiencing all that Reinhardt has to offer.
“Homecoming is a time for all students to come together and celebrate Reinhardt,” said Sloane Day, assistant director of student programming and orientation. Based on the line-up of activities planned by the Student Activities Council, students will have plenty of wonderful opportunities to enjoy each other's company and our beautiful campus.
Activities are planned throughout the week, beginning on Monday, Oct. 18 and culminating on Saturday, Oct. 23 when the Eagles take on Faulkner University from Montgomery, AL. All activities are open to students and alumni unless otherwise noted.
