Homecoming

 

 

Homecoming Week: Oct. 19-24

In response to COVID-19, Bluffton University created #ProtectTheDam, a comprehensive return-to-campus plan that protects our faculty, staff, students and campus community. 

In addition to extra sanitizing and cleaning, social distancing and wearing masks, there will be no campus visitors or guests during the fall semester, except for recruiting visits that are managed through the admissions office. 

This means we are bringing Homecoming 2020 to your home!
