Welcome to Homecoming 2015 at Valdosta State University!
Show your Spirit!
Throughout the week, we will be asking for submissions via social media - with the hashtag #VStateHC - of alumni, students, faculty & staff showing their Blazer Pride!
On Friday, with the help of the Alumni Chapter of Valdosta, SGA, and volunteers, we’d like to visit the community and catch others in the act of showing off their Blazer spirit. Blaze will be canvassing Valdosta (through the wonder of social media alerts) to find people donning their favorite VSU gear or decorating their businesses to showcase their best black and red. Those “caught” will be photographed and receive a prize for participating. We’d like to encourage schools, businesses, and others to promote staff participation and share a photo of their group wearing our colors. Bows will also be tied around light poles downtown and will be available for businesses requesting them throughout the community.
