The Mayville State Alumni Association is playing "catch-up" in 2021, as homecoming festivities in 2019 were canceled due to a snow storm and 2020 festivities were canceled due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

We look forward to an epic celebration in 2021! Don't miss the opportunity to honor special people and to celebrate our roots as Comets!
