Homecoming 2014

October 5 - October 11, 2014

For more than a century, Pittsburg State University has welcomed its alumni and friends back to campus with its Homecoming celebration.

Homecoming is more than a single football game; it is a time for students and alumni to reconnect with friends, family and traditions.

Whether it’s Convocation, Yell Like Hell or Saturday’s football game, we hope you are able to enjoy the many traditions that make up this year’s Homecoming at Pittsburg State.
