Homecoming Hype; Welcome to the Meccaverse

Homecoming Hype; Welcome to the Meccaverse

Our favorite time of year is here! Ok, well one of them. After a few years of grappling with the chaos of a whole pandemic, Howard's Homecoming is back live and entirely in person. HU Homecoming is so special because it's a celebration of Howard University in its multitude. This year, Homecoming is coming back strong with the theme, Welcome to the Meccaverse. The theme is inspired by a desire to celebrate the fullness that is the Howard University legacy, influence and experience. The official Howard University website states that Howard is a  “whole new world characterized by Black excellence, bold leadership and an immense history that connects them to the past while simultaneously igniting the spark that set them on a path to discover their future.”

With events from October 15th to 23rd, here’s a reminder as to what you can look forward to: 

Homecoming Football and Bison Pep Rally
The Fashion Show
Greek Life Step Show
Homecoming Day of Service
Lavender Reception
Yard Fest Concert 

Keep an ear to the ground as we wait for the announcement of the Yardfest Performers. Speaking of Yardfest, Black & Scholared is excited to be featured as one of the vendors at Yardfest this year for the first time! Get a headstart by checking out the Howard University Collection. We can’t wait to see you live and in-person next month!
