As a result of the weather forecast, today’s homecoming event times have been altered, according to a university release.

As of Thursday night, The Knob race – a two-mile race to the top of Howard’s Knob – will still begin at 5:30 p.m. at the Watauga County Library. Participants are encouraged to check triplecrownappstate.edu for any potential weather updates affecting the event. The same stands for the race back down the mountain, known as The Bonk.

Lip Sync finals will take place at 6 p.m. in the Holmes Convocation Center, as opposed to the previously planned Duck Pond Field. The pep rally following Lip Sync, at 8 p.m., will also be held in Holmes Convocation Center. The fireworks display and bonfire that were planned have been canceled.

Appalachian’s women’s soccer team is still tentatively scheduled to face Troy University at 7 p.m. at the Appalachian Soccer Stadium. This may change due to rain. Updates can be found on www.appstatesports.com.

The schedule for Saturday and Sunday events remains unchanged at this time.

We hope you appreciate this article! Before you move on, our student staff wanted to ask if you would consider supporting The Appalachian's award-winning journalism. We are celebrating our 90th anniversary of The Appalachian in 2024!

We receive funding from the university, which helps us to compensate our students for the work they do for The Appalachian. However, the bulk of our operational expenses — from printing and website hosting to training and entering our work into competitions — is dependent upon advertising revenue and donations. We cannot exist without the financial and educational support of our fellow departments on campus, our local and regional businesses, and donations of money and time from alumni, parents, subscribers and friends.

Our journalism is produced to serve the public interest, both on campus and within the community. From anywhere in the world, readers can access our paywall-free journalism, through our website, through our email newsletter, and through our social media channels. Our supporters help to keep us editorially independent, user-friendly, and accessible to everyone.

If you can, please consider supporting us with a financial gift from $10. We appreciate your consideration and support of student journalism at Appalachian State University. If you prefer to make a tax-deductible donation, or if you would prefer to make a recurring monthly gift, please give to The Appalachian Student News Fund through the university here: https://securelb.imodules.com/s/1727/cg20/form.aspx?sid=1727&gid=2&pgid=392&cid=1011&dids=418.15&bledit=1&sort=1.
