This is really interesting to me.  Why do people go to a homecoming at a school they never attended?  I mean, I am sure it's a fun event and all, but I have never reeally thought about going to homecoming stuff at another school.

I never went to homecoming at my undergrad, but all this talk about Howard makes me want to go.

It's not just "another school" Ruskie. It's not homecoming at a white school like Chico State or some sh*t. You are talking about HBCUs. It's all about the black family experience and black folk from all over are welcome to enjoy....

I don’t understand that blk_reign. Why do people call Howard “the mecca” when clearly the AUC (Atlanta University Center) is the Mecca of black intellectual power and prestige: Morehouse College (Ranked #1 HBCU for 2 yrs in a row)  , Morehouse Theological Seminary, Morehouse Medical School, Spelman College (Ranked #2 HBCU for 2 yrs in a row. #1 for black women obviously) , Clark Atlanta University,  and Morris Brown College. I mean come on now. When we have homecoming in the AUC we do it real big. Perhaps Howard is a mecca...but, it's not the mecca. F*ck HOWARD!

i mean, i understand that it's an hbcu and all.  i guess it's just a different culture of homecoming functions.  our functions cater to alums and current students. when fools that have never gone to ut, never knew anyone who went to ut, and never so much as set foot in a college classroom show up at our homecoming, they aren't very welcome.  it's an event for people with ties to ut and not a damn free for all that any fool within a 3000 mile radius of knoxville can attend so he can pick up college educated women. i presume that's how it is at most white schools.  that's why i never really had the desire to go to another school's homecoming.  as you have explained to me, hbcu's are different. the howard thing seems to be more inclusive.  i guess folks don't get looked at funny when they show up without ties to the school. hey, it probably makes for a bigger and better party.  that's cool, i just didn't know that before.  thanks for edumacating me! ;) :-*

EDIT: the free for all comment was in reference to what the fools that show up at our homecoming think it is, not to what an hbcu homecoming is.  realize it sounded a bit off.  just wanted to clarify my intentions.

Howard U. is a historical and integral part of the history of African-Americans
Not to mention it is the location of the first Black Fraternity founded on a HBCU!!

all i know is that in ludacris' song "pimpin all over the world" he says he can't miss the "homecoming at howard."  sounds pretty important to me.
