Each year alumni near and far return to the Mecca to honor tradition, reminisce about their Howard experiences and make new memories. It’s a time to connect with old friends and make new ones.

It’s a time where everyone comes together - students, faculty, staff, alumni and friends - to show Bison pride. An experience like none other, Howard Homecoming is a time to celebrate the many things that make Howard so special: the community, excellence, and experience!

“Forward” is the concept of Howard’s recently unveiled strategic plan called Howard Forward: 2024, which outlines the University’s vision to advance the mission over the next five years. As the Bison community returned to campus with fond memories and proud reflections of the rich Howard legacy, Homecoming was also an opportunity to look ahead at the new generation of scholars and celebrate the future accomplishments and milestones to come. The 2019 Homecoming theme reflected this sentiment.
