We are pleased to announce that Norfolk State University will host its annual Homecoming Parade at 8 a.m. on Saturday, October 28, 2023, starting at Booker T. Washington High School. LaVoris Pace ’87, Deputy City Manager of the City of Norfolk, Virginia has accepted our invitation to serve as grand marshal of our parade.
We are accepting applications for this year’s parade. At NSU, we are fully committed to providing the Spartan community with a meaningful and impactful homecoming experience.
The 2023 Homecoming theme is There’s No Place Like Home! As the theme suggests, Norfolk State University is a special place where you can feel comfortable, safe, and happy. No matter where you go, where you live, what you do, or how long it has been since you’ve visited our campus, there's no place that can compare to the feeling of being at home.
We are eager to welcome you to our campus. To access the online application, please visit the following link: online parade application. The registration deadline for your organization to enter the parade is Monday, October 2, at 11:59 p.m.
