SAVE THE DATE…..Homecoming 2011

October 24-30, 2011


We hope to see you in Norfolk during the week of October 24-30, 2011 when we welcome more than 40,000 alumni, parents and friends to a week of exciting events, alumni gatherings, football and family fun.

Alumni activities at the Norfolk Division of Virginia State College (VSC) began on November 28, 1949 when the Norfolk Division of VSC Alumni Association was formally organized. At that time, one game during football season was designated as Homecoming and this concept has become increasingly successful as time passed. Each year over 40,000 alumni, students, friends and community partners come back to participate in this multifaceted celebration that has fostered a long legacy of fellowship entertainment and Spartan pride.
