Come groove with MU! Millikin is looking forward to offering a hybrid Homecoming Celebration Weekend October 1-3, 2021, that will include both in-person and virtual events.
This year’s Homecoming theme, Big Blue Rewind, invites you to turn back time, reconnect with friends and celebrate our shared history of Millikin. Whether you’re from the vinyl, 8-track, cassette, CD, iPod or streaming generation ... Homecoming promises to provide a mixtape of sweet memories, both old and new!
Here are some of our favorite highlights from Homecoming 2020:
- Haunted Millikin stories with Troy Taylor was a crowd favorite, with more than 100 people logged in to confirm their paranormal suspicions of campus spook-lore!
- The Black Alumni of Millikin Virtual Brunch was a spectacular kickoff to relaunch this important affinity group, with more than 50 people joining in.
- More than 1,200 people watched the Virtual Concert from Your Couch, which featured performances by 21 talented alumni.
- We welcomed President Jim Reynolds and his wife, Sue, to the Millikin community with a virtual Q&A session.
- And the largest reunion boasted over 50 Residence Life and Student Development staff from 1970 to 1999, who gathered together to relive old stories and reconnect.
