The month of October has been much anticipated, as it hosts the festive week of Homecoming from Oct. 21 through 27.
To kick off the excitement, University Student Union (USU) Productions held an event on Sept. 24 to reveal this year’s Homecoming theme in the USU Pit and Balcony from 12 to 1 p.m.
The reveal celebration included free ice cream, as well as giveaways for Homecoming’s Big Show, featuring T-Pain, and the Fresno State marching band was present to provide an energetic atmosphere to the event.
There was also an area set up for students to “bless the homecoming football” and take photos with an official Fresno State backdrop.
Shortly after the event began, a poster was hung up in the USU Pit to advertise Homecoming’s theme for 2019: Unleash The Bulldog Spirit.
The Fresno State Homecoming committee has also put together an official Spotify playlist that is online for the public to listen to before buying tickets for the campus-hosted concert in October.
The playlist specifically includes artists such as T-Pain, MAX, VIAA and Fresno’s DJ Kay Rich. It can be found by looking up Homecoming Big Show 2019 in the search bar of Spotify.
Tickets for the Homecoming Big Show on Oct. 23 at 7 p.m. in the Save Mart Center (SMC) are still available for students, alumni, faculty and staff to purchase at the USU Information Center, SMC Box Office or online at ticketmaster.com.
The price of tickets are $15 for students, $33 for faculty, staff and alumni; after Oct. 20 tickets will be raised by an additional $5.
