Pittsburg State University Homecoming Events

Updated:

A week full of events are planned at Pittsburg State University to celebrate Homecoming.

University officials says homecoming is a century-old tradition.

According to "Pittsburg State University: A Photographic History of the First 100 Years," by Randy Roberts and Shannon Phillips, the homecoming tradition began in the university's early years as reunions associated with teachers' meetings each fall. By the '20s, fraternities and sororities were hosting reunions and by the '30s, it was an important and permanent part of the campus culture.
