With events set up for both former and current students, Tennessee State University’s (TS) highly anticipated homecoming week is slowly approaching. Fresh off of mid-term week the students are looking for an exciting climax of their fall semester. From Oct. 13th through the 19th the Historically black college will be busy entertaining and educating with school spirit as the football team prepares to take on Austin Peay that Saturday at the Nissan Stadium.
The football team currently holds a record of 1-5, are 0-2 in the conference and rank 8th overall.
A few of the University’s usual plans consist of hosting activities such as a Pep rally, step show, contests, comedy show, concert, and a parade, along with events thrown by many different organizations.
The comedy show will feature comedians Desi Banks, Chico Bean, and Karlous Miller with a performance from rapper Da Baby. The concert will consist of rappers Co Cash, Lil Keed, Lil Durk, G Herbo, and Gunna. Those two events in particular will take place in Kean Hall, the university’s smaller gym. Students are allowed to purchase tickets for these events at a discounted price in Gentry, the University’s larger gym. While it is free for students to enter the game with student I.D. they are allowed to purchase game tickets at a discounted price for friends and family that are also interested in attending.
While it is a student ritual to have fun and exclude classes, it is obviously highly recommended that students still be present for every class they are currently registered for.
