Homecoming/Family Weekend Events

Five days of fun are planned for Buffalo State’s Homecoming/Family Weekend, September 25–29.

Activities include the King and Queen Competition and the Lip Sync Competition. Thursday’s events include the final rounds of both contests as well as a pep rally, a banner competition, and the CollegeHumor Live Tour concert in the evening, featuring Saturday Night Live’s Colin Quinn and other comedians.

Friday includes a food drive, the parent-student dinner, the Young Alumnus Achievement Award Reception, and an evening performance of Beatlemania. Saturday’s activities include breakfast with President Howard, the student favorite shopping cart competition, a parade, a tailgating tent and party, and the 1:05 p.m. football game against Kean University. The 2007 Buffalo State Athletics Hall of Fame induction ceremony follows the game. Homecoming/Family Weekend culminates with a dance, “Club Homecoming,” in the Campbell Student Union at 10:00 p.m.

According to Tom Koller, associate director for external affairs, Intercollegiate Athletics, Homecoming/Family Weekend is one of the few opportunities during the year for the entire campus to come together to celebrate the college. “There’s something for everyone,” said Koller, who also is chair of the Homecoming/Family Weekend’s planning committee. “From students to faculty and staff, as well as parents and family members, there are a variety of events for everyone to enjoy, and plenty of opportunities to show Buffalo State spirit.”
