Florida Tech Athletics Legacy Celebration: A Toast To Bill Jurgens


This event has been postponed to a later date, TBD.

Florida Tech's pandemic response team has been closely monitoring the Covid-19 situation in Florida and in Brevard County and has made the decision to postpone all large campus events, including the Florida Tech Athletics Legacy Celebration.

The Alumni Office will make an announcement when a new date is finalized and it is safer to gather again.


Join us on campus this fall to celebrate Florida Tech Athletics and honor a true Panther legend, Mr. Bill Jurgens, who recently retired from the university after 50+ years of service, 44 of which as the Athletics Director.
