It’s HBCU Homecoming Season And We Got You Covered

Homecoming season is one of the most anticipated events for Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs). Homecoming is more than just a football game, it’s a week of events that allow students and alumni to come together to celebrate the vibrant history and culture that can only be experienced on a HBCU campus.   

The fun-filled week will include parties, celebrity appearances, panel discussions, and other events. Members of the Divine Nine — Black Greek letter organizations — will convene for friendly competition through step shows and stroll-offs.  

Homecoming is also an important fundraising event, as it provides an opportunity for alumni to give back to their alma maters. 

The festive week ends with the big game, which allows students, alumni, and guests to tailgate, reminisce on old times, and root for their teams. The highly anticipated halftime show allows the bands to show off their skills

Several schools have already concluded their homecoming festivities, including Shaw University and Alabama A&M. But the season is far from over. If you would like to enjoy the HBCU homecoming experience this year, view the schedule to find a game near you.
