BUCKHANNON, W.Va. — West Virginia Wesleyan College’s Office of Development has decided to move the school’s Homecoming 2021 to April 22-24, 2022 due to the rise in local COVID-19 cases.

The decision was made due to the high local infection rate of COVID-19 as well as a projected low attendance. Information about refunds and April registration will appear at a later time.

Plans for the April weekend of events will be announced at a later date.
