“Lets jump in the car and just ride for hours, I’m making sure I don’t miss the Homecoming at Howard” says rapper Ludacris in his hit song ‘Pimpin’ All Over The World.’
We all know about Howard University’s Homecoming (or at least you should), its legacy and the excitement it brings across the nation. But the question on everyone’s mind this year is “Who is coming to Homecoming 2013?”
The Howard University Homecoming 2013 Steering Committee Chairwoman, Kristin D. Hutchinson, hopes to excite the student body and help incite a pride in the University, starting with Homecoming.
This years Homecoming will take place from October 22nd to October 27th at The Mecca. Known to feature the most popular artists and acts each year, a great turnout by students and family and friends of the Howard community is expected–just last Thursday 950 students picked up their golden-tickets as the Homecoming Unveiling tickets were distributed from the Cramton Auditorium box office.
‘EPIC’ will be the 2013 theme for Howard Homecoming festivities.
“Epic, by definition, means larger than life,” said senior Jenelle S. Coy, who serves as the Marketing & Media Relations Manager for the 2013 Howard University Homecoming Steering Committee.
“Our staff consists of 25 incredibly talented individuals who have been grinding since May to produce an amazing Homecoming for the student body. The Unveiling is only the beginning of what is to come from the EPIC staff,” Coy said.
