Howard University welcomed alumni back home for a week of in-person and virtual Homecoming activities in October, marking some of the first in-person events held on campus since the pandemic.
Themed “Remember the Times,” this year’s Homecoming reminisced about Homecomings past while celebrating the fact that students could create their own memories on campus this year.
Homecoming was kicked off with the crowning of the Royal Court in Cramton Auditorium, followed by a roaring pep rally in Burr Gymnasium. Other popular and familiar events included the Greek Step Show and Yard Fest, both held in Cramton Auditorium to manage crowd size and COVID-19 safety.
The annual Day of Service was held the Saturday morning before the big game and included activities across the Washington metropolitan area focusing on community beautification, health, education, and environmental justice.
The game itself took place in Greene Stadium against Norfolk State, where Howard alumni and students together cheered the Bison. Homecoming weekend concluded with the annual fashion show in Cramton Auditorium and a virtual Party on the Yard.
