Elon’s virtual Homecoming & Reunion Week is packed with over 100 events, many of which will be hosted on Zoom. Have questions about Zoom? Join in on the fun confidently with our Zoom Help Guide, where you will find answers to frequently asked questions about the video conferencing platform.
Is Elon Homecoming & Reunion Weekend still planned for October 16-18, 2020?
Yes, but in a virtual format. Elon’s Homecoming & Reunion Weekend 2020 has now been moved to a week-long virtual celebration from Monday, October 12 – Sunday, October 18th. While we understand this is not the same as an in-person Homecoming & Reunion Weekend, the coronavirus pandemic has disrupted our plans to do so. With the continued spread of COVID-19, Elon is making every effort to ensure the safety of our students, alumni, faculty and staff. Although this year will certainly feel different not being on campus, we hope you will still join us for a week full of virtual festivities to reconnect and celebrate #ElonHome!
What does a virtual Homecoming look like?
While we are sad that we will not be able to gather in person, we are excited to offer #ElonatHome, a celebration featuring our beloved Elon homecoming signature events and activities you can enjoy with classmates and friends around the world without leaving the comfort of your living room! A variety of livestreamed and virtual events and activities are being planned – including a special Rock YOUR Block celebration, college coffee, virtual run/walk, class and affinity reunion events, classes without quizzes, food and drink demonstrations and much more!
Where can I view the virtual Homecoming & Reunion Week schedule?

Where can I find Zoom links and passwords for my events?
Zoom links and passwords will be sent (from Elon Alumni) via email prior to each day’s events throughout Homecoming & Reunion Week. Be sure to keep an eye on your inbox for this important information.
Having trouble locating your email? Be sure to check your spam folder or email email@example.com for assistance.
Can reunion classes of 0s and 5s combine with 1s and 6s in 2021?
Yes, the classes of 0s and 5s will combine with the 1s and 6s to celebrate in-person next year in addition to our Virtual Homecoming & Reunion Weekend festivities this year.
Can Elon host a separate reunion for all 0s and 5s classes in 2021 on a different weekend from the 1s and 6s?
Under normal circumstances, campus is bustling with activity throughout the year. The timing of summer events—commencement, summer sessions, etc. – does not allow for two separate full Reunion weekends.
When will we know the date for Homecoming & Reunion Weekend 2021?
Homecoming & Reunion Weekend dates will be announced in early 2021 and shared on the Homecoming website, social media, and email.
Will the reunion fundraising and counting period change?
The reunion fundraising and counting period will remain the same; ending on December 31, 2020.
I already reserved my hotel room; can I get a refund?
Please contact the hotel directly. Elon has communicated the decision to move Homecoming & Reunion Weekend virtually to all hotels that offered discounts. That list can be found here.
Who can I contact if I have additional questions regarding my reunion?
If you have any additional questions regarding your reunion, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
When does registration open?
Homecoming & Reunion Week registration is now open! You can register here.
Why do I need to register online?
Registering online provides you with zoom links and passwords to the various virtual events as well as lets your classmates know that you are planning on participating! Everyone who registers will have their name appear on the “Who’s Participating” list.
Is there a cost to attend the virtual Homecoming & Reunion Week?
There is no cost to participate in the majority of events throughout Homecoming & Reunion Week; however, there are a couple of events that have a small cost for participating.
