Minnesota State Mankato is cancelling 2020 Homecoming Week festivities in an effort to keep students and campus community safe during the pandemic. In place of Homecoming activities, the University is hosting Spirit Month from Sept. 28 through Oct. 29. Although no one wants to miss the traditions associated with Homecoming, Spirit Month will provide similar opportunities for students and alumni to share their Maverick pride, engage with the University and have fun in a safe, socially distanced way.
