FAMU Sets New Homecoming Date

April 16, 2012

TALLAHASSEE, Fla. - Florida A&M University (FAMU) has pushed its Homecoming back to November 10, 2012, to ensure that alumni and other supporters will be able to secure hotel accommodations as the University celebrates its 125th Anniversary.

"With this being the historic 125th anniversary of Florida A&M University, we wanted to allow as many people the opportunity to enjoy the weekend of activities as possible," said Derek Horne, director of athletics at FAMU.

Due to the fact that there is another major event in Tallahassee on the original date set for Homecoming, access to accommodations and other resources were hampered on Oct. 13.

"We have been in discussion with alumni leadership on this matter and the University and the Department of Athletics have both agreed to this solution," said Horne.  "FAMU is committed to serving the needs of the university, alumni and community, and this change helps to make this possible."

 This year, FAMU will celebrate its 125th Anniversary during Homecoming 2012 and will honor 125 Outstanding Alumni during the President's Gala scheduled for Friday, November 9, 2012 at 7 p.m. at the Lawson Center.  In addition, the Homecoming Convocation is scheduled for Friday, November 9, 2012 at 10:10 a.m.
