Announcement

Birds of a feather flock together. A saying that reminds us just how special our Blue Hawk Family really is. It is with a heavy heart that we have decided to cancel the 2020 Homecoming banquets and alumni events scheduled from October 8-10, 2020. At the forefront is the safety and health of our alumni and friends. The decision was made jointly by the DSU Heritage Foundation and Blue Hawk Athletics.

The 2020 class of Hall of Fame inductees will be honored during Homecoming 2021.

Join us for Homecoming 2020

October 4 – October 10

This schedule is subject to change. All events will be held in accordance with DSU’s modified Covid-19 event guidelines.
