It's homecoming weekend in Institute for West Virginia State University.
Thousands of WVSU alumni from around the country are expecting to attend homecoming celebration activities all weekend.
A featured event Saturday was the homecoming parade, followed by a family fun event at the Erickson Alumni Center.
Each of the university's colleges also hosted a tailgating event before Saturday afternoon's football game against Urbana University.
“We try to get back about every five years,” Dr. Edward E. Dickerson IV, an alum from Fayetteville, N.C., said. “Loved seeing everybody from our sorority folks and our fraternity members, as well as a lot of family and friends.”
Homecoming events wrapped up Saturday night with an alumni dinner.
