Tomorrow is the start of a week long drum of activities for students and fans alike. Because most HBCU’s will be preparing for the exciting homecoming extravaganzas nationwide.

I won’t be able to list all of the historical greats institution in one blog. But there will be a link available so that you can explore that opportunity.

As a result, I will list the Top HBCU schools you should be following next week. And we most definitely will start with St. Louis’ own Harris-Stowe State University.

The school has been surrounded by a rebirth of the city in recent years. Because for one, it is not far from west downtown where the splashy new MLS Stadium is being completed for the start of 2023.

Harris Stowe has added many developments to it’s campus as well. In addition, it is the number one choice in enrollment for any diversities.

Everything kicks off tomorrow with a church service. And Harris-Stowe does has a calendar for you to check all the activities and games that are scheduled.


Meanwhile we move to Delaware State vs NC Central in a homecoming game match up. Delaware State is located in Dover, Delaware, while North Carolina Central University is located in Durham, North Carolina.

Benedict College vs Clark Atlanta University is next on the calendar for the 29th. Benedict College is located in Columbia, South Carolina and we all know Clark is in the bustling Atlanta, GA.

Now we continue with more schools meeting in the big homecoming games. The popular Florida A&M University vs University of Arkansas at Pine Bluff will square off.

Florida A&M is located in another big city market of Tallahassee, while small town Pine Bluff of course is home to University of Arkansas.

When I am completed with my top picks of games during homecomings.I will leave you with a link so you can navigate to any information you need just in case you are traveling to the events.

My final tally of schools and games are Prairie View A&M University vs visitor (all the first mentioned schools are the hosts) Bethune-Cookman University.

Prairie View is located in Prairie View, Texas and Bethune-Cookman is located in Daytona Beach, Florida.
