Founder Week

Founders’ week is a time-honored tradition and special time for our Bearcat family – namely alumni, who return to campus each year to participate in the celebration of Rust College, Bearcat pride and spirit, and renewal of lifelong bonds created with fellow alumni throughout the years. It is an annual family reunion that Rust College looks forward to each year, that welcomes our alumni back to “Citadel on the Hill” to share in the week-long celebration.

For several months now, we have continuously assessed the current public health landscape regarding COVID-19, while monitoring cases and projections throughout the country and implementing a robust effort to protect the campus community against the spread of the virus. In our effort to mitigate the spread of the virus throughout our campus, state, and inevitably the nation, we have decided to proceed with a hybrid schedule of virtual and inperson activities.
