Welcome Home

SFA’s annual Homecoming is one of the university’s most popular and spirited traditions! AXEperience, a student-run group that promotes SFA’s history and traditions, works closely with the SFA Alumni Association to plan a weeklong celebration for all students and alumni. Activities include a concert, bonfire, fireworks, downtown parade, 5K race, Homecoming Court elections, football game, tailgating and much more.

Along with these traditional Homecoming events and activities, students also take part in Spirit Service Week, collecting donations for the Lumberjack Food Pantry, hosting a blood drive and participating in other service-based initiatives across campus.
