Pandemic Safety, Restrictions Necessitate Move

Matisyahu performs at the 2019 Homecoming Fest in downtown Melbourne. With municipal restrictions in place for large gatherings, and campus-based safety precautions that include limited public access, the postponement of the multi-day event was the sensible approach to preserving Homecoming and presenting it next year, said Bino Campanini, senior vice president of student life and alumni affairs.

MELBOURNE • BREVARD COUNTY, FLORIDA – Florida Tech’s 2020 Homecoming festivities have been shifted from October to Spring 2021 as the university continues to respond proactively to the COVID-19 pandemic and seeks to ensure the safety of guests at the popular annual celebration.

With municipal restrictions in place for large gatherings, and campus-based safety precautions that include limited public access, the postponement of the multi-day event was the sensible approach to preserving Homecoming and presenting it next year, said Bino Campanini, senior vice president of student life and alumni affairs.

“It is our hope to be able to offer our students and alumni all of the same activities and events, including the 5K run/walk, Homecoming Fest with the free concert in downtown Melbourne, and the Florida Tech Gala here on campus,” Campanini said.

“We’ll continue to assess the challenges and public safety concerns and make final decisions as we get closer to the spring semester.”

The Homecoming theme “Relentless Twenties” will remain for the spring 2021 celebration.

The new date will be announced as soon as it is finalized.
