Welcome to Homecoming in the Valley!
October 16-22, 2016
Welcome to Fort Valley State University’s Homecoming website. Wildcats from all around the world gather in Fort Valley, Ga. for a celebration of all the things about our wonderful and historic institution that we hold dear.
Fort Valley State University remains one of Georgia’s greatest resources and a wellspring of history and excellence rooted in teaching and learning, scholarship and cultural enrichment. As part of our special mission as a land-grant institution, we continue to produce outstanding graduates poised to address today’s challenges as well as being creative innovators in developing groundbreaking research. Our robust efforts to educate inspiring leaders, scientists, researchers, business leaders, teachers, biologists and other professionals are second to none.
With your passionate involvement and support, we are successfully increasing our enrollment. More people are learning about who we are and how we are positively impacting our community, our region, our state and our country. FVSU also is transforming into an institution poised to soar to new and greater heights by providing new programs to help our graduates secure highly sought-after careers, including new minors in cybersecurity, applied statistics, theater, gerontology and chemistry. While we strategically grow, FVSU has remained committed to providing a deep-quality experience and excellence in all that it does.
We’re especially excited about our new football coach, Kevin Porter, who is helping to usher in a new era in our football program’s level of excellence and showmanship. During homecoming week, you’ll experience some of the Blue Machine Marching Band's dynamic energy as we celebrate an awesome array of activities, including a gospel concert, Greek step show, parade and outstanding Wildcat football. This homecoming celebration is for the entire City of Fort Valley, Middle Georgia and Wildcat fans everywhere. We can’t wait to see you there!
