Homecoming is a great time for alumni to return to the campus they once called home,
hear updates from their alma mater and reconnect with former classmates. We had a
great time in 2019 and are excited to bring homecoming back to the spring by popular
demand, with Feb. 19-20, 2021, as our next gathering.
Unfortunately, due to continuing concerns about the Coronavirus and the ongoing safety
of our Plainview campus students, we have decided to take our next homecoming weekend online. Several events will be held at specific times; other events may be available via
on-demand viewing at our WBU Alumni You Tube channel. Planning is underway and details
will be released here very soon.
Honor class meetups with move to a live Zoom format, allowing for alumni from all
over the world to gather and catch up. Ambassadors are needed for all reunion classes
(1970-1971, 1980-1981, 1990-1991, 2000-2001 and 2010-2011), but we need all alumni
on board to encourage others to connect at various events! Plan to join us online,
reach out to your classmates and invite them to join you for a great weekend of reminiscing
and reconnecting -- all without having to pay for travel, dress up or leave your home!
What could be better than that?!
