The phrase “Once an Eagle. Always an Eagle” truly exemplifies the bond students have with Morehead State University, whether they are current students or proud alumni.

That’s why every year in October, so many people return to join One Eagle Family and reconnect at MSU Homecoming. 

For Homecoming 2019, which takes place from Oct. 18 through Oct. 19, plenty of students, faculty, staff, alumni and friends of the University will once again come together through numerous events and festivities to celebrate all things MSU. 

Before the Homecoming Weekend, the Campus Activities Board (CAB) will be sponsoring several Homecoming-related activities for faculty, staff and students in anticipation of the arrival of many Eagles eager to show their support for the blue and gold. 

“Homecoming is the most exciting time of the year for alumni. Eagles from every generation return to campus to relive memories from the ‘good old days,’ reconnect with former classmates and interact with today’s students,” said Mindy Highley, assistant vice president for alumni relations and development. “This year’s schedule is packed full of activities and we anticipate that thousands of alumni will come home for a weekend of Eagle excitement.”
