Virtual Homecoming & Family Weekend

Frequently Asked Questions

Will there be any on-campus Homecoming and Family Weekend events for alumni, parents, and families?

The health and safety of the Carthage community are of the utmost importance to us. Therefore, with an abundance of caution regarding the resurgence of COVID-19 infections, we have made the tough decision with the support of the Carthage Alumni Association Board to cancel in-person alumni Homecoming and Family Weekend events scheduled for Oct. 2-4, 2020, and instead host virtual events. 

Are there plans to reschedule reunions for the Class of 1970 and other groups hitting reunion benchmarks?

We are excited to welcome back all reunion groups for in-person programs during Homecoming and Family Weekend in fall 2021.

I am not able to attend certain events. Will they be viewable later?

Certain events and programs will be available to view at any time. Reunions, webinars, and a few other events are live events and will not be rebroadcasted.

I ordered homecoming merchandise on the website. When will I receive it?

Proceeds from sales will go toward the Student Emergency Fund. In order to reduce production and mailing costs, all orders were shipped on Sept. 18. Any orders received after that date are not guaranteed to arrive before Homecoming and Family Weekend.

I ordered homecoming merchandise on the website. Can I pick it up myself?

Yes. If you live in the area and would like to pick up your merchandise early, please send an email to alumnioffice@carthage.edu to arrange curbside pickup. Please note: this service will only be available Monday through Friday during normal business hours.
