Lyceum 2021: Time to Shine Moved to October

Sherman College has been carefully evaluating plans for Lyceum 2021 over the past few weeks in accordance with current events and local, state, and federal recommendations regarding COVID-19. The college has opted to postpone Lyceum 2021 until October 28-30, 2021, in hopes that it can host its annual homecoming and continuing education event experience on campus and in person.

As the year progresses, we will continue to evaluate the safety and potential liability of hosting this event, and we will keep you informed with as much advance notice as possible. No matter what happens, you can count on Lyceum 2021 taking place on October 28-30, either in-person or virtually.

The goal is to host this event in person so we can see our alumni and supporters, connect with new friends, and celebrate our wonderful profession together, just the way B.J. intended at the first Lyceum so many years ago. Please watch our website for the latest program information and updates. One way or another, we'll see you in October! Read the full announcement.

Keeping it Clean: Sherman Pride Around Campus
Even the cold weather can't stop Sherman College students from serving their community.

Club leaders and other students volunteered their time to clean up Springfield Road, the college's sponsored area for the Adopt-A-Highway program.

"This was the first highway clean-up we have done since this pandemic started, so you can only imagine how much trash there was to pick up," said CSG President Taylor Dempsey. "Despite the cold, many students gave an hour of their time to beautify the area surrounding the school that we are so proud of."
