Students and classes are back in full swing at North Carolina A&T State University, but there’s still a buzz in the air.

That means students, alumni, family, friends and community constituents alike will descend on the university’s campus for fun and entertainment of nearly every kind.

Although, the official Homecoming 2016 game against rival, Florida A&M University will be Saturday, Oct. 29, the festivities begin Sunday, Oct. 23. Events will include a comedy show featuring Michael Blackson and other special guests, a step show, the homecoming concert with Young Thug, Party Next Door and others, and a gospel concert featuring Fred Hammond, Karen Clark Sheard and many more. Ticket information is available by contacting the N.C. A&T Ticket Office in Brown Hall at 336-334-7749.
