Homecoming is always a highlight of the year in October. The weeklong celebration is a time when alums return to their home-away-from-home to reconnect with former classmates and see how the campus has changed. It is also a chance for FVSU students to take a small break from their rigorous courses to socialize and enjoy themselves. The week of activities culminates in the ultimate football showdown when the FVSU Wildcats battle the Paine Lions at 2 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 25 in Wildcats Stadium. The annual parade will precede the game at 9 a.m. Saturday morning in downtown Fort Valley.
