Homecoming continues to be a tradition on campus: This year is themed “Blazers in the Magic City” and will feature popular annual events such as the Gurney Derby and the Homecoming Parade, plus community-focused activities such as the Blazer Spirit Campus Cleanup and the Blazer Bolt for Brain Cancer.
