Blackburn College

Homecoming @ Home

Dear Blackburn family,

Welcome to the first-ever Virtual Homecoming!

Blackburn’s Homecoming weekend is a treasured time for our community to come together to reconnect with friends, reminisce about college or work days, and make new memories of our beloved alma mater. While Homecoming 2020 looks differently this year, we look forward to creatively connecting in a variety of virtual ways.

Happy homecoming, Beavers!

Toast to BeaverNation

A warm welcome to this virtual gathering from the 18th President of Blackburn College, Dr. Mark Biermann.

Here is to you, BeaverNation -- please enjoy this socially distanced weekend but we can't wait to welcome you home to campus in September 2021!


Welcome & Reflection

"While the homecoming may be virtual, the home it represents is still very real and the home fires are burning bright."
