Homecoming @Home Calendar:

Homecoming is about celebrating the Hornet family and reconnecting, even in a year where we've had to postpone football. So while we wish we could see you in person, we are excited to celebrate with you virtually this year and welcome you "back." Hornets everywhere are invited to get involved. Events are free to attend for the entire community!
