Hornet Homecoming 2014

                             Forever ASU

Alabama State University’s 2014 Hornet Homecoming festivities featured a little something for everyone, from a show-stopping concert to the traditional parade to festive game-day tailgating and the fierce gridiron battle between ASU's Hornets and the Stillman Tigers.

Hornets old and new came out to celebrate the family, friendships and festivities that come with being a part of ASU’s 147-year legacy.

While this year’s celebration marked the first year of a new tradition (holding the Turkey Day Classic football game on the Saturday before rather than on Thanksgiving Day), the Hornet Nation, in typical fashion, showed up and showed out.
