Campus Departments, Organizations Invited to Participate in Homecoming and Family Day 2012


Plans for Jacksonville State University's Homecoming and Family Day 2012 on October 27 are underway and the Office of Student Life needs your help to make it a success.

"The success of last year's event was due to the joint efforts of all by having many departments and sites designated throughout the campus for visits and tours," says Debbie Taylor, assistant director for Student Life and Multicultural Programming. "Providing our guests a variety of venues and activities to participate in on campus is our ultimate goal. Again, I look forward to departmental open houses, campus tours as well as the JSU music department being a vital part of this great day."

The homecoming parade will begin at 11 a.m. down Pelham Road. Kickoff time for the game against Murray State will be at 3 p.m. The theme for homecoming is "Gamecocks... Rounding up the Racers."

The JSU Office of Student Life invites all campus departments and organizations to be a part of the celebration. Participants of Homecoming and Family Day will have their event publicized in the mail out brochure. The deadline for submitting information is September 14, 2012.

If your department or organization plans to participate or if you have further questions, please contact Ms. Taylor by phone at ext. 5490 or by email to
