CBU to celebrate 2021 homecoming with virtual celebration

Riverside, Calif. (March 3, 2021) – California Baptist University will celebrate homecoming on March 5-6. Traditionally, homecoming is a time for the Lancer family to return to campus for fun and reconnection. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, CBU will host a virtual celebration.

Alumni, students, parents and families are invited to participate in a weekend full of activities from the comfort of home.

“We are deeply saddened that we cannot welcome our alumni, parents and families back to campus to celebrate this year. However, we hope the Lancer family will make plans to celebrate with us through the virtual activities we have planned,” said Joshua Moss, senior director of alumni, parent and donor engagement. “While we believe this weekend will create opportunities for Lancers of all eras to connect, we look forward to next year when we can all be back together on campus.”

The planned virtual activities include the following:

On March 5, CBU Alumni & Parent Relations will share a video highlighting CBU through the decades. Other video slideshows will showcase the classes of 1971, 1996 and 2011 in honor of their 50-, 25- and 10-year reunions. These will be posted on the University Advancement YouTube channel.

The CBU men’s basketball team will take the court against Seattle University on March 5-6. Games start at 6 p.m. both days. The Lancer Nation is encouraged to livestream the game and cheer on the Lancers from home.

Lancers also can follow @alumnicbu on Instagram and Facebook and participate in fun activities on social media — including a pet rally and a photo collage challenge — with chances to win prizes all weekend.

An online store will have available for purchase Homecoming Spirit Packs with specialty Lancer merchandise.
