Alumni Fall Weekend

November 5, 2021

Alumni Fall Weekend is back for 2021! We’ll have an Alumni Class Day on Friday afternoon followed by a pre-game Fall Festival on Friday evening. We will enjoy cheering on our Johnson University Royals men’s basketball team as they take on Maryville University on Friday evening. Saturday morning will feature an excursion to The Island in Pigeon Forge for a meal at Paula Deen’s Family Kitchen and a ride on the Great Smoky Mountain Wheel.
