GSU Gears Up for Homecoming

Ready for a weekend of school spirit? Georgia Southern University will host thousands of visitors for the big homecoming game. Alumni of all ages will gather for the game and a weekend of parties that start with a parade through campus tomorrow afternoon.

Organizers say some parties are organized for different alumni groups, but most are for everyone. "There'll be college reunions," said Frank Hook of the GSU Alumni Association. "All the colleges are combining together to host one tailgate party with each of the deans helping serve the meals."

If you'd like to attend, the tailgating party is from 10am until noon on game day. Barbecue plates will be $5 each. Kickoff is at noon.
