Although we have no reported cases of coronavirus on campus or in Lakeland, out of an abundance of caution, Florida Southern College has made the decision to postpone all 2020 Founders Day and Homecoming Weekend events. This decision was made to prioritize the health of students, alumni, and guests. The postponement includes:
* All events during Homecoming Weekend are postponed, with the exception of previously scheduled athletics events. We are continuing to follow guidance from the NCAA and Sunshine State Conference about safe, healthy competition and travel. For those trips that require travel, we are providing student-athletes the opportunity to make the decision to travel, or not, based on their comfort with the health and safety of the trip.
A webpage has been created for information about the coronavirus. This page — which we will update regularly — features national and local resources, as well as frequently asked questions about virus prevention, travel recommendations, College events, and more.
New dates for Founders Day and Homecoming Weekend will be shared in the future. All previously paid Homecoming registration fees will be applied toward the rescheduled event, or refunded (at the request of the registrant). To request a refund, please call (863) 680-4117 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
