The semester is coming to end shortly and unfortunately, that also means only a few more Pirate football home games left! Besides family weekend, the Homecoming football game is one of the biggest football weekends for the Pirate nation! Alumni and families join the rest of us to enjoy a weekend full of events!
This year, the University has a long agenda planned for students throughout the week along with events all weekend to lead up to our Homecoming football game vs. Tulsa.
Wednesday night, the annual Homecoming skit will be held in Wright auditorium. Students and Organizations will organize skits to be judged, which is always fun! Thursday, students can give back by visiting the local Food Bank for the Homecoming Canned Food Drive and later in the evening enjoy the SAB Homecoming concert featuring J. Cole, this year! Events continue on Friday, where students can attend the Homecoming Pep Rally and NPHC Step Show.
Final events leading up to the big game will include, the float competition and the Homecoming parade on Saturday morning. The parade will those who were nominated for Homecoming court.
Pirate football definitely stirs spirit among those at ECU and in Greenville, but Homecoming weekend holds even more, in my opinion!
