As we have moved to a fully virtual homecoming experience for 2020, we are excited to welcome so many of our alumni who might not have been able to travel. This weekend will be full of addresses, recordings, tours, featured website postings and chat rooms all intended to welcome you back to your Indiana Tech home.

While times are subject to change, here is list describing all of the exciting things we have going on from Thursday, Oct. 1, through Saturday, Oct. 3. Stay tuned for updates and more information as it becomes available. We hope you will join us!

Alumni through the decades

A Walk Through the Decades Video

Take a look at the journey of 90 years of Indiana Tech and the historic milestones we have achieved in that time. Indiana Tech photo and video producer Randy Smith, along with the rest of Indiana Tech’s marketing department, has produced this moving and visually stunning historical look at how far we’ve come over the years. We guarantee you’ll be inspired!

Friday, Oct. 2
Virtual Campus Tours

Get an inside look at Pierson Hall and the newly constructed Summit Hall from the eyes of an incoming freshman. “Stop by” Max’s Bistro, Central Grounds, Warrior Park and the newly resurfaced Kline Court, which is just waiting for action inside the Schaefer Center. See the campus as it is today with its state-of-the-art facilities and marvel at just how much we’ve grown since your time here.

Indiana Tech Alumni Association Awards
Friday, Oct. 2
50- and 60-Year Graduate Recognition

While we traditionally invite alumni to campus for a celebratory banquet, complete with recognition of lifetime achievement and a medal presentation, this year we are doing something unique in hopes to engage more alumni who would not normally be able to attend. We will be reaching out to alumni who have met that 50- and 60-year mark to invite them to share their biography to be posted to our alumni recognition page. In addition, we will send them them a personally-engraved medal to mark the occasion. Those alumni will also be invited back for the 2021 Homecoming Alumni Awards Banquet for a chance to mingle with their warrior family in person.

2019 Alumni Award Plaques
Friday, Oct. 2
Alumni Association Awards

In similar fashion to the 50 and 60 Year Graduate Recognition, our Annual Alumni Association Awards portion of the weekend will be featured as a post to our homecoming website. These recipients of the Graduate of the Last Decade (G.O.L.D.), CPS Alumni of the Year, Volunteer of the Year, and Alumni Hall of Fame awards will be recognized in a biography exploring the multitudes of reasons they deserve such prestigious awards. Recipients will be invited back for the 2021 Homecoming Celebration to be recognized in person.
