After considering the many challenges and restrictions presented by COVID-19, University of the Cumberlands has decided to cancel this year’s homecoming activities (scheduled for October 9-10). This was not an easy decision to make. Still, we believe it is the best option for protecting the health and well-being of our alumni, guests, and the many individuals who study, live, and work on our campus.
To our 50th Reunion Class of 1970 and all of the classes ending in 0 or 5: We can’t wait to celebrate your reunions in 2021 with all the recognition you deserve. Additionally, the Distinguished Alumni inductees will be recognized at Homecoming 2021.
While we will not be together this fall, we still hope to host some special alumni events this spring. We will certainly be back in touch with you when those details are available.
