Welcome

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!

This year’s celebration will be no different. A phenomenal week-long lineup of events is planned, many that are rich in tradition and a few that are altogether new. There is something for everyone. To name a few, The Annual Day of Service is an opportunity for the HU community to fellowship while serving others, the HU Ideas Symposium is back with an exciting showcase of provocative discussions on critical topics impacting the African-American community, and of course the incomparable YardFest will deliver a dynamic concert experience! 

The 2018 Homecoming theme, selected by Howard University students, perfectly connotes what Howard Homecoming is all about. It’s that feeling of intense excitement and happiness you get when you come home and reconnect. It’s steeped in excellence, truth and service. Welcome to Howard’s 2018 Homecoming: EUPHORIA!
