Homecoming 2020 activities and events
Dear Furman Community,
It is Homecoming season and while our activities and events may look a little different this year, we are pleased to share that students, faculty and staff have worked together to organize a robust schedule of in-person and virtual events. Thank you to our students and campus partners for the creativity and care they put into organizing safe and fun events for our campus community.
These events have been approved by the Fall Planning Steering Committee and Public Health and Safety Advisory Group, in accordance with our campus event policies and guidelines as well as our health and safety protocols. Approval is pending from the South Carolina Department of Commerce for the socially distanced parade (see below). [UPDATE: The parade has been approved.]
Some events and activities require advance registration; all of the in-person events taking place on campus are limited to students currently living on campus and commuters. Students are required to wear masks and practice physical distancing at all events. Students should also be prepared to show proof of their completed daily health check through the LiveSafe app. To reduce density and help protect the health and safety of our campus, the public and faculty and staff who are not staffing the activities may not attend the in-person campus events.
The details of some activities may change, so we encourage you to continue to check syncDIN, the websites and social media accounts listed below, as well as the Furman Focused website for updates. A complete listing of Homecoming events may also be found here.

We hope that these events provide a variety of opportunities for both on-campus and remote students as well as members of the Furman community to celebrate and come together as Paladins.
Be well and, most of all, have a safe and healthy Homecoming week.
