We’re doing it differently this year, but we are still doing it! The EMU Homecoming experience has officially been "remixed" bringing you interactive and fun programming for alumni and students alike. It’s our take on continuing the Homecoming tradition, but in a different way...another version.

As we celebrate the most spirited week virtually and remotely, there are many ways for alumni and fans to show their support of the university no matter where they live. Homecoming includes an opportunity to engage with old friends and family during a number of scheduled programs and to the mix. So tune in and enjoy all the Homecoming festivities. Be a part of the tradition and join us for Homecoming 2020!

Athletic Programming

Even though we can’t cheer on Eastern Football at The Factory this fall, you can fuel the competitive spirit by running in the Virtual 5K! Registration for the Virtual 5K is just $40, with $10 of every registration going to the EMU Student Emergency Fund! All participants will receive an official event t-shirt, Eastern Athletics fanny pack, and a race bib.

Once registered, you can run your 5 kilometers anywhere that’s convenient for you! Whether that’s on a treadmill, running with your dog, or even just a brisk walk around the neighborhood. Submit your time during homecoming week and see how you stack up against the rest of the Eastern Family with our virtual leaderboard! Register for the Virtual 5K event.
