The mission of Penn State Homecoming is to celebrate tradition and instill pride in all members of the Penn State family through active engagement of students, alumni, faculty and staff across the community.


We believe that the traditional sense of a homecoming celebration encompassing a parade and football game has evolved, and strive to set a new standard for homecoming celebrations.. Penn State Homecoming organizes a number of exciting events in the spring and fall semesters culminating with the events of Homecoming Week.


This section of the website is for all things Homecoming Chairs for Overall Competitors and event registrants. Penn State Homecoming organizes a number of events in which our Overall Competitors partcipate in to earn spirit points. Such events include the For the Glory Talent Show, Best of Penn State Carnival, and the Float Compeition during our annual Parade.

If you or your organization would like to register for the overall competition, please contact Jamie Letender, Competition Director, at competitionhomecoming@psu.edu. Registrations for Homecoming 2017 will open in the spring.
