Fayetteville State University Homecoming 2013 Events Announced

FAYETTEVILLE, N.C. (September 26, 2013) – Coming off of a year when it was voted Best Homecoming among the nation’s historically black colleges and universities (HBCU), Fayetteville State University (FSU) will again provide students, alumni, and friends with a week of events that will again place it at the top of the list. Homecoming 2013 at FSU begins October 21 and concludes October 27, 2013.

In 2012, HBCUConnect.com, the largest website dedicated to historically black colleges and universities (HBCUs), conducted an on-line voting contest that asked “Which HBCU Has the Best Homecoming?”  After the votes were tallied, FSU was the winner.

This year’s homecoming showcases a variety of events for alumni, students and the general public. One of the featured activities includes a performance by the Dayton Contemporary Dance Company of Ohio on October 22 at 8 p.m. The performance will be a homecoming for one of the group’s dancers. Qarrianne Blayr McClelland, a Fayetteville native and graduate of E.E. Smith High School and Howard University, is among the performers. Cost is free for FSU students and $10 for the public.

The highlight of any FSU homecoming is the annual parade. The parade will be held at 9 a.m. on October 26. It will begin at the intersection of Hillsboro and Rowan Streets and make its way toward Murchison Road pass the FSU campus.

Following the parade is the traditional football game where the Broncos take on St. Augustine’s University of Raleigh. Tickets are $28 reserved; $25 general adult, military with I.D., FSU faculty and staff; $15 students and children.
