    Arkansas Tech University has announced the schedule of alumni and community events for its 2021 Homecoming celebration on Friday, Oct. 22, and Saturday, Oct. 23.

    It will mark ATU’s first traditional, in-person Homecoming since 2019. The COVID-19 pandemic forced the cancelation of many ATU Homecoming events in 2020 and other activities last year were transitioned to a virtual environment.

    “We are thrilled to be back on campus and to have more in-person events this year,” said Caroline Kitchens, ATU director of annual giving and interim director of alumni relations. “Our ATU Alumni Association Board of Directors is excited to get out there, volunteer and visit with alumni and friends of the university. We’re looking forward to being back together.”

    Individuals may register for events by visiting
