2020 Homecoming and Alumni Week Goes Virtual!

Put your fins together for a weeklong list of virtual events to celebrate 2020 Homecoming and Alumni Week from November 1-6.

The NSU community proves, over and over again, that we are “1 NSU”. The challenges that 2020 has posed have encouraged Shark Nation to come together, while socially distanced, to strengthen our Shark spirit and find ways to adapt to new situations. The 2020 Homecoming and Alumni Week will not be the exception. This year, NSU Alumni Relations and Annual Giving is partnering with a number of units and departments university-wide to host the following virtual opportunities and events.
