UPDATE: Regretfully, due to the pandemic and the regulations that the safe operation of the college requires, many of our planned Homecoming events have been canceled or modified. Please note that all on-campus events are “tentative” and open only to the campus family. Although we are not able to welcome alumni, parents, and friends back to campus, many of the events scheduled will be streamed so you can cheer on our Knights from home (see links below). We will do our best to keep this page accurate as plans are finalized. We eagerly look forward to welcoming our alumni and friends back to campus when conditions allow. All posted times are Central Daylight Time.

The 2021 Homecoming weekend is tentatively set for October 8-10. Make your reservations early as the first two weekends in October are also Oktoberfest in New Ulm. The 2019 Homecoming was a huge success (photo gallery). Thanks to the many alumni, parents, and friends who came home to the hill to support our students and spend time with their MLC family.
