It’s a ten-letter word that is synonymous to cookout, reunion, block party, celebration, and fun. At a historically black college and university (HBCU), very few experiences top the excitement and fun had during homecoming week. The multi-day festivities typically feature a combination of events that the school hosts to foster school spirit including a football game, some sort of celebration or fest on the “yard” or “quad”, a homecoming tailgate, fashion show, comedy show, parade, Greek-letter organization step show, and not to mention — tons of parties. Homecoming is a time for alumni to celebrate the memories gained and for students to strengthen their HBCU pride and enjoy the cultural legacy of its beloved institution.
