Langston University Celebrates An Unforgettable Homecoming

Written By Christina Gray

There is nothing like an HBCU homecoming! LU alumni and fans traveled across the country to enjoy the week’s festivities

The week kicked off with Gospel Fest featuring Dove Award-Winning Musical Artist, Travis Greene. The LU-OKC Campus hosted a family fun night complete with games, vendors and more! Several events highlighted the University’s milestones including the 40th Anniversary Celebration of the LU-Tulsa campus and the 30th Anniversary Celebration of the E.P. McCabe Honors Program

The 14th annual President’s Scholarship Gala was marked with celebrity guests including the host, Emmy Award-winning comedian Sheryl Underwood and featured musical performances by local artist Club Nouveau and R&B funk headliner, Cameo. The evening was dedicated to those who have given in support of the University’s mission and all the proceeds went directly to student scholarships.  

Gameday festivities included the annual parade, a tailgating competition, and the highly anticipated football game. Dance teams and marching bands came from all over the state to march in the parade that featured our beautiful historic campus. Lion fans of all ages came out to watch the Lions storm the stadium to defeat Texas Wesleyan in a 69-7 battle. Game Day was highlighted by the top-ranked Marching Pride Band during their incredible halftime performance.
