Pittsburg State Alumni & Constituent Relations invites alumni and friends across the globe to virtually celebrate Homecoming. Homecoming is going to look a little different this year – much like most of 2020. The theme is Pitt State Together, and that’s really what Homecoming is all about. Even though we are unable to host Taste of Pittsburg, enjoy the Homecoming Parade, or cheer on the Gorillas at Carnie Smith Stadium, we still want to celebrate our alma mater and connect with you at home. Check out the schedule of events and the chance to show your Gorilla Pride at home with a limited-edition PSU Pride Pack!
