So Howard Homecoming is the largest tradition on campus and also a national holiday. Howard is home to millions; like I said, when you come here, its family. The people you know are the people you grow old with, and homecoming is the time where you catch up with those you lost touch with and enjoy some of the flyest events. Homecoming may be one of those things we put entirely too much money into, but its all worth it. Homecoming is a week long. We have classes, but its one of those times some teachers excuse our regular absence. We have Fashion shows, an RnB concert (this year we hosted Tyreese, Monica, Avant, and other artists), Comedy Shows....everything. (check out www.whbc830am.com for reviews of our past homecoming). The largest and most memorable event is yardfest when thousands of people congregate on the yard to enjoy a free concert. The best thing is how all the clubs in the city have parties for us and its just a whole week of crazy fun!
