SUNY Delhi Alumni Weekend & Homecoming Frequently Asked Questions
What are the 2019 dates?
Friday, October 25 to Sunday, October 27 with Saturday, October 26 having the fullest day of programming.
Why is this event in the fall again this year?
Alumni Weekend & Homecoming took place last October, rather than June as was a past tradition, because many alumni gave feedback that they would prefer to visit campus when the college is in session; there are more people (faculty, staff and students), there is more to do and food service has many more options. This feedback coupled with declining alumni turnout reinforced the decision to move our annual alumni reunion to the fall. The 2018 Alumni Weekend & Homecoming saw a great turnout of alumni, higher than recent years, and received a majority of positive feedback from the 155 alumni attendees. For these reasons, we are hosting this special event in October again in 2019.
Will there be any overnight accommodations offered?
Because college will be in session in October, the residence halls will be full and there will not be rooms available on campus. However, the college will secure blocks of rooms at area hotels again this year at a reduced rate for alumni. We will share information about special rates for overnight accommodations soon. In the meantime, you may also want to explore more area accommodations.
Will there be shuttles?
Yes, we plan to have Bronco Bus shuttle service in the village of Delhi. Also, on Saturday, October 26, shuttles will run between Delhi and Oneonta, if there is enough interest. Please contact the Alumni Office at 607-746-4600 if you are interested in the shuttle service and check back for an online schedule.
What about alumni who find it more difficult to attend in October?
Unfortunately, there is no perfect time to organize an event when everyone can attend. Please know that you are always welcome to visit campus at a time more convenient for you. The Alumni Office is open Monday to Friday from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. EST. If you contact us before your visit, we can help you with your plans, including scheduling a tour, if you’d like.
Will the Alumni Awards still be presented?
Yes. The SUNY Delhi Alumni Association Awards will be presented as part of Alumni Weekend & Homecoming during the alumni dinner on Saturday, October 26, 2019. If you have an alum you’d like to nominate for an award, please visit Alumni Association Awards and submit your nomination by May 1, 2019.
