PORTALES — Eastern New Mexico University, anticipating continued issues with the COVID-19 pandemic, has opted to cancel in-person homecoming events and have the ENMU Alumni Association instead pursue various virtual events to recognize and celebrate alumni.
The homecoming festivities were scheduled for Sept. 21-26. Canceled in-person events include the ENMU Foundation Awards Breakfast, Songfest, the pep rally and bonfire and the Homecoming Parade and tailgate. Alumni reunions for the classes of 1970, 1995 and 2010 have been postponed to 2021.
“While we are disappointed to have to postpone these incredible celebrations,” Alumni Affairs Director Annamaria Short said, “our desire to be prudent with decisions about the health and safety of both the alumni community and our campus home overwhelm this sadness.”
