Frostburg State University alumni from across the country will be able to attend this year’s Homecoming no matter where they are — It’s virtual. The festivities can be accessed from the Frostburg State’s Homecoming website and FSU Alumni Association Facebook page from Thursday, Oct. 15, to Sunday, Oct. 18. 

This year’s events start off with a virtual presentation in appreciation of retired faculty and staff all day Thursday, Oct. 15, on the Facebook page (@frostburgstatealumniassn). 

All day Friday, celebrate the Bobcat Athletics Hall of Fame over the years, as well as honor 2020’s inductees and athletic programs celebrating anniversaries. Look for the celebration on Facebook. 

Saturday will be filled with plenty of events to connect with fellow Bobcats, including an all-day Digital Alumni Welcome Center on the Facebook page. Yearbook memories, contests and prizes and a virtual check-in will be shared throughout the day. At 10 a.m. Saturday, the Jim Anderson Memorial Baseball Celebration will be featured on Facebook and the Homecoming website; the event will showcase memories of previous years. On Saturday afternoon, Bobcats are invited to decorate their porches, driveways or car trunks and join the Alumni Association for a virtual tailgating experience. Visit www.frostburg.edu/homecoming for more information.  

To wrap up Saturday’s events, there will be an All-Alumni Reunion on Zoom. Members of student organizations, athletic teams and other alumni groups can reserve a virtual room on the Homecoming website. Participants will receive a recipe for a themed cocktail and a themed Zoom background. 

On the final day of events, Sunday, Oct. 18, a virtual Golden Anniversary “Brunch” for the class of 1970 will be held at 11 a.m. to celebrate the 50th anniversary of their graduation year. 

There will also be opportunities leading up to Homecoming to connect with fellow Bobcats. From Oct. 12 to 16, Alumni Relations and the Career and Professional Development Center will host a career readiness week. For information, contact Clarissa Lang at calang@frostburg.edu.
