N.C. A&T is making some changes to its GHOE – homecoming celebration to help it get a handle on the huge crowds that attend this annual event. According to Greensburo.com The university announced late Thursday that fraternities and sororities no longer will be able to cook or grill at their Greek plots during homecoming, which is Oct. 24. Nor will Greek organizations be allowed to hire their own DJs. Instead, A&T will set up a tailgating area in a parking lot between Murphy Hall and Williams Dining Hall. A&T also will set up a soundstage nearby and provide the DJs.
University officials said they are concerned about the size of the crowds at the event that students and alumni call “The Greatest Homecoming on Earth.” Officials say the crowds would make it tough for police and firefighters to respond to emergencies.
Students, Fans and Alumni took their frustrations to twitter.
I think it’s straight trash how they trying to monetize the yard for #GHOE & tell certain frats/Sororities they can’t tailgate. Unreal.
