After surveying alumni and tracking the status of the health crisis, we have decided that Cardinal Weekend 2020 will be fully virtual. Although we are disappointed not to welcome you back to campus in person, we are excited by the possibilities of an all-online event.

Cardinal Weekend 2020 won't be just another online happy hour; it will be a full-scale, virtual experience designed to bring the fun of homecoming to all Catholic University alumni.

“This year has been challenging and our team is adapting to make Cardinal Weekend an engaging experience for all alumni. Without the logistics and costs of traveling and lodging, more alumni can join in the fun of a virtual Cardinal Weekend. Alumni all over the globe can participate: We have the potential to make our biggest annual alumni gathering even bigger!”

— Chris Johnson, executive director of Alumni Engagement

From October 23 to 25, alumni will be able to gather in online spaces for a number of asynchronous and synchronous events, including student and alumni performances, trivia, a 5K run/walk, a tour of campus, conversations with faculty and coaches, and more! (Reunion alumni, please check your email on Thursday, August 6, for a new survey: We want your help planning your class celebrations.)

We will announce more details when we open registration, which is tentatively scheduled for Monday, August 24. Update: Registration will open the week of August 31. Thank you for your patience.

Although Cardinal Weekend 2020 will be much different than we had anticipated, it will continue to offer the camaraderie with fellow alumni that you've come to expect. Thank you for your good cheer as we adapt to this unusual year. Go Cards!
