Queen’s University has announced that Homecoming 2021 will take place over two weekends in October instead of one. “The decision to host two alumni Homecoming weekends is driven by the desire to be responsive to alumni and to accommodate the projected number of attendees in event venues on campus and accommodations within the city of Kingston and beyond,” said a statement on their Homecoming website. “Our plans for in-person Homecoming weekend will be subject to public health guidelines and may need to be modified or cancelled.”
Homecoming will take place from October 15 -17, 2021 for classes whose graduation year ends in ‘0’ or ‘5’. It will take place from October 29-31, 2021 for classes whose graduation year ends in ‘1’ or ‘6’. A virtual event for all alumni takes place on Sunday, October 17, 2021.
It’s not the first time the institution has split its traditionally spirited alumni celebrations in half. The 2013 Homecoming was also held over two weekends, after being cancelled for four years following community complaints about riotous parties. Hope to see what’s in store for the university in October.
