EVENT: TSU Homecoming Schedule, 2013


It's that time again, HOMECOMING season is here! Being an alumni of a historically black college/university (HBCU), homecoming is a big deal. It's a party, celebration, time to see old friends, and has huge histrocial significance. In addition, living in the city where my alma mater is located, I'm always involved in how the community helps celebrate homecoming. There's concerts, parties, parades, and events - the city is ready to celebrate.

Last year, Tennessee State University, celebrated a century of service. It was a grand celebration. This year we homecoming is special becuase we inaugurate a new president. Tennessee State University proudly announces the inauguration of Dr. Glenda Baskin Glover as the eighth president of the institution. She's the school's first female president and she's poised to skillfully guide the university to the right direction.


So, let's get to the list of events. Here's a list of alumni friendly events that will occur this week. On Wednesday I'll list my annual outfit inspirations for the weekend.
