Central State University Homecoming 2022, All The Way Live
Posted By: Reginald Culpepper on October 04, 2022 |
Ohio’s only public Historically Black College or University, Central State University, celebrates the respect and pride that students and alums have for their alma mater. The University’s progress in terms of the growth and opportunities it offers to incoming students is at the center of the jubilee.
According to Central State University President Dr. Jack Thomas there are many reasons to celebrate. “Central State University is well-positioned to achieve academic excellence and to provide a quality, well-rounded education to students in Ohio and beyond. As an 1890 Land-Grant University, Central State continues to advance in the areas of science, technology, agriculture, and research and create partnerships that expand opportunities for its faculty, staff, and students to be innovative and creative,” he said.
The days of October 5 – 8 are jam-packed with activities like musical events; an alumni day; a fish fry; a royal coronation; a golf outing; a naming ceremony and dedication of the John W. Garland College of Engineering, Science, Technology, and Agriculture; vendor fairs; a group breakfast; group luncheons; receptions; a memorial service; a homecoming parade; reunion photo sessions; a football game; a step show, and a gala.
