This tradition usually takes place between September and October. The activities surrounding homecoming vary widely. Some homecoming last for a few days and others for an entire week.
In High School, homecoming is more of a dance following a football game. This American tradition has evolved over time as people bring their best dress out. “My homecoming was great. I looked forward to the dance, seeing my friends dressed up, and having a break from the school’s stress” stated Milly, a high school Junior.
In college, homecoming is on such a bigger scale. At an HBCU, the scale increases even more. Homecoming is only comparable with the largest of family reunions. The bands are immaculate, the games are intense, and the parades block miles and miles of streets off. The week consists of parties, networking events, and alumni and student interaction. Individuals travel all across the world for homecoming games and concerts and fellowship with those they haven’t seen in years.
