Homecoming Parade 2012

There are numerous events going on during homecoming for students. Take pride and get involved around campus.

Sac State's annual Homecoming Golf Cart Parade is back and bigger than ever. Be sure to sign up for a chance to decorate and compete for the grand prize trophy and yearlong bragging rights. The parade will spread spirit around campus prior to the game, join the Hornet Walk during the festival, and loop around the track at halftime.

Following success with a week of events last year, the Student Alumni Association (SAA) brings you another week of fun activities! Get involved!
