Florida Tech Homecoming 2022 | March 24-26

**Cancelled**

We have all been living through a challenging reality these past two years, and we had hoped that 2022 was the right time to return to in-person Homecoming festivities at Florida Tech.

Unfortunately, a combination of circumstances has led us to the difficult decision to cancel all Homecoming activities previously scheduled for March 24-26. While Panther Pride is high, the initial response to various events has been lower than hoped—likely due to lingering travel concerns surrounding the pandemic.

While we won’t get to see each other at Homecoming this year, we look forward to finding other ways to connect, and know that Homecoming 2023 will be all the more enjoyable. Thank you for your understanding.
