Muskingum University’s students, alumni, faculty and staff will join together for the University’s annual Homecoming and Reunion Weekend on campus from Oct. 18 to Oct. 20. In its second year as a combined event the University community will celebrate reunion classes and alumni award recipients, will recognize championship athletic teams, and will participate in a variety of performances and athletic competitions.
“Combining Alumni Weekend and Homecoming creates a wonderful opportunity for alumni and students alike to share stories and to celebrate their time as Muskies,” said Jen Bronner, senior director of Alumni Engagement and Annual Giving. “We’re looking forward to honoring all of our reunion classes that extend the University’s long magenta line while having some fun through the engaging and entertaining Homecoming events planned around campus throughout the weekend.”
Muskingum University alumni from the classes of 1949 through 2019 are returning to campus to celebrate their reunions, but all Muskies are invited to attend. Highlighting this group is the class of 1969 who will be returning for their 50th reunion.
