Homecoming and Family Weekend Events

Posted: September 21, 2016

Join the Buffalo State community in celebrating Homecoming and Family Weekend 2016.

Homecoming provides a rare opportunity for the entire campus community to come together to celebrate Buffalo State. With fun-filled activities like the pep rally, lip sync competition, and parade and the exciting action of Bengals' football, homecoming offers something for everyone. This year's theme "Many Bengals, One Roar" will be demonstrated throughout the week and allow you to show your Buffalo State pride in a variety of ways.
