Welcome to ESU Homecoming 2019: Ignite your Spirit
ESU looks forward to seeing everyone at Homecoming 2019. This year,
we have made some enhancements to ensure that you, your classmates,
family members, and friends have a time that they will never forget.
As we lead up to Homecoming 2019, keep your eyes open for e-mails and social media that will update you on our schedule.
We are also asking that you visit our Facebook page and post photos of ESU memories, and past Homecomings using the hashtag #esuhomecoming2019. We will be displaying these pictures throughout the weekend at our events.
The Classes of 1954 and 1969 will be celebrating their reunions on campus during Homecoming. For details, contact the Office of Alumni Engagement at (570) 422-3194. SEE THE SCHEDULE.
The East Stroudsburg University sports information department unveiled the redesigned ESUWarriors.com on Wednesday, debuting a new look and updated features for the official athletics website of ESU.
The redesign, which debuted Wednesday afternoon, was revamped in a collaborative effort with college athletics website provider SIDEARM Sports and the ESU sports information office. The new-look home for ESU’s 22 varsity athletics programs features a modern design, easier navigation, and integration with Warriors athletics social media platforms.
Additionally, the new layout now boasts a responsive layout that will automatically adapt to a user’s custom screen resolution and browser settings, as well as mobile devices and tablets.
“We look forward to growing our partnership with SIDEARM sports for this upcoming athletic year and beyond as we continue to enhance and grow East Stroudsburg University’s presence online,” said Doug Page, ESU Assistant Sports Information Director. “SIDEARM has been awesome to work with throughout this entire process and we look forward to continuing to provide an outlet for our student-athletes, fans, and supporters who follow Warrior athletics to stay up-to-date.”
Among the improvements, visitors will now have quicker access to schedules and rosters, a more comprehensive all-sports calendar, and a static ticker that scrolls through recent scores and upcoming games. Other improvements include easier access to photo galleries and video highlights as well as fan zone content.
