Luther College will celebrate Homecoming and class reunions in October

Luther College has announced plans for in-person, virtual and livestreamed events to celebrate Homecoming and alumni class reunions during the month of October. 

“After much planning and patience, the reunion committees and staff are excited to finally welcome alumni back to campus and back to Decorah,” said Stephen Sporer, vice president for development. “Throughout the pandemic, there was no question that classmates were eager to return to Luther and see one another. It wasn’t a question of if these events would happen, but when.”

Homecoming normally draws approximately 2,500 visitors to campus on a single weekend. Coming out of the COVID pandemic, the college is holding a series of events to prevent crowding and mitigate continuing concerns about the potential for spread of COVID.

Homecoming will occur Oct. 1-3. Events of this weekend will include ceremonies honoring the 2020 and 2021 Distinguished Service Award recipients, Athletic Hall of Fame inductees, music award winners and reunions for the classes of 1966, 1971, 1981, 1986, 1996, 2011 and 2016.

Reunion celebrations will continue on Saturday, Oct. 16, with the classes of 1951, 1956, 1961, 1976, 1981, 1991 and 2001.

The class of 2020 is invited to attend a reunion weekend on Oct. 29-31. This special weekend is designed to celebrate these alumni whose senior year was cut short by the pandemic.

Advance registration is encouraged, as in-person events may have attendance limits. 

Along with the on-campus events, there will be virtual and livestreamed events offered to all alumni throughout the month of October.
