We’re approaching that time of the year when alumni come home and the entire Panther family celebrates our beloved university, HOMECOMING! If you haven’t heard, there will be great events taking place all week because we’re #HomeATLast, including the following:
1. Good Morning Georgia State
October 16th at 8:00am at Unity Plaza
Kick-off Homecoming Week with FREE breakfast in Unity Plaza. Did I mention there will be FREE breakfast?
2. Spirit Plaza
October 17th at 12:00pm at Unity Plaza
This event right here will definitely get you in a celebratory mood. The free snacks, balloons, music, and the overall excitement of homecoming will set this week’s plaza apart from all the others.
3. Homecoming Block Party
All who have been to the Homecoming Block Party can all vouch for me when I say that this party is TURNT!
October 17th at 7:00pm Georgia State Stadium
4. Homecoming Variety Show
October 18th starting at 7:00pm Student Center East Ballroom
Georgia State’s Variety Show hosted by Spotlight is one of the most anticipated fun nights of Homecoming week! If you’re looking for a good time, with great music, even greater dance moves, and talent; then I can promise you that you will not want to miss this event!
5. Golf Cart Parade
October 19th starting at 12:00pm at Hurt Park (Gilmer Street)
For those who don’t know, this parade is when all the student groups and organizations unite to celebrate our homecoming throughout campus and the downtown Atlanta community…on decorated golf carts.
6. Royal Ball
October 21st starting at 9:00pm at The Fernbank Museum
The Royal Ball is one of my personal favorites of the school year. This is the event where everyone dresses in their absolute best, finally lets loose and just haves fun. Let me tell you this… The Royal Ball NEVER disappoints and this year’s theme is ‘‘Through the Look Glass,’ the sequel to ‘Alice in Wonderland.
7. Homecoming Football Game & Tailgate
October 21 at 2:00pm at our very own Georgia State Stadium…#HomeATLast!
This is the highlight of the week and one of the biggest games of the season! It is the time when our football team tears down the house and the homecoming court is crowned.
Sounds good, right? I look forward to seeing everyone out and about next week in celebration of homecoming and Panthers remember to share your pictures on social media using #HomeATLast to be featured on the homecoming website, and for your chance to be a Homecoming VIP!
