Homecoming Q & A

With homecoming just 12 day away, we thought we’d ask a few alumni what they remember most about their time on the sloping hills and verdant green and homecoming.
Renee Clark ’06
“During my time at NCCU, the football team had an undefeated season and we experienced academic growth like no other. I love the people I met while a student; they continue to enrich my life.”
Norma Petway ’77
“As a student, NCCU’s homecomings were so special. We were entertained by The Manhattans, Earth Wind and Fire, The Isley Brothers and Donald Byrd and the Black Byrds. Homecoming was off the chain!”
Devin Sanders ’06
“Homecoming was the highlight of each year. I came to NCCU as a young scientist and I didn’t know anything. During my time here, my department moved into a new science building and we introduced the BRITE program.”
Clayton Mack ’97
"While here at NCCU I was involved in everything from SGA to the Teaching Fellows. In 1994, I was a roadie for the homecoming concert with the Notorious BIG.”
Chevella Thomas ’82, ’04, ’06
“As a student I was an Alpha sweetheart and a Lady of Black and Gold. I’m a proud member of Zeta Phi Beta Sorority. I loved my university so much, especially the football games and now the alumni dances.”
Bill Evans ’62
“Homecoming at NCCU is filled with special memories, including the football games, the Marching Sound Machine and the class reunions. This year I will join about 75 classmates in becoming a Golden Eagle.”
