What does a traditional SFA Homecoming look like?

The traditional events associated with Homecoming are a bonfire on Friday night and a parade Saturday morning.

Student leaders are selected to represent spirit and tradition as part of a homecoming court.

The week of Homecoming includes a Spirit Service Week. Volunteers will collect food donations for The Pantry, the campus food pantry. The annual blood drive and other service based initiatives will be hosted throughout the week.

Axeperience, the organization that hosts Homecoming each year is working the SFA Alumni Association to host an amazing Homecoming Auction that offers a variety of SFA gear and specialty gifts available!

Homecoming Court

Become part of the SFA Homecoming court! Students compete for points throughout the week of Homecoming by participating in various campus events. These points are added to total vote totals to determine the 2021 Homecoming Court.
