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.
