Together Again was the theme of the University of Arizona’s 2021 Homecoming celebration, apropos for the first in-person Homecoming in two years thanks to the pandemic.

The College of Architecture, Planning and Landscape Architecture joined the festivities this year with several events from November 1-7. The busy week included our Día de los Muertos Celebration in the Underwood Sonoran Garden, honoring Heather Henricks Lenkin ’79 B.Arch as our 2020-2021 Alumna of the Year on Thursday, and welcoming alumni from every decade at our Friday evening Homecoming Reception and 58 Society After-Hours Event. The celebrations culminated in Sunday morning’s wonderful Class of 2020 Convocationfinally!—at UArizona’s Health Sciences Innovation Building. A great time was had by all throughout the week.
