Homecoming 20/20: Focus on the Future
Homecoming is more than just an event. It's an occasion to celebrate everything that's unique and incredible about Doane University. It's a chance for alumni, students, employees, parents, and friends of all ages and backgrounds to honor friends and mentors. It's an opportunity to connect with Tigers who share common experiences, interests, passions, and purpose. We are all Tigers together—even during a pandemic.
The past several months have been unlike any others we have experienced, and there remains great uncertainty as we focus on the future by carefully evaluating our fall programming. In order to plan accordingly with the safety, health, and comfort of all Tigers at the forefront, this year's homecoming will look a bit different.
It's important to recognize that the spirit of homecoming will not change. Campus tours and engaging opportunities to reunite will still occur pending the status of the pandemic in October. Some activities, affinity-based celebrations, and fun learning experiences will be digitally delivered. However, the fact that we are all Tigers coming together will remain. We will work tirelessly to bring the essence of Doane home to you this year—because "home" is where your heart is, and we hope that a part of yours remains with Doane.
