Every year, the Florida State University community comes together to celebrate one of the most anticipated weeks of the fall semester—FSU Homecoming.

Alongside enthusiastic students are faculty, staff, alumni, and community members who celebrate Florida State University’s rich traditions and excellence. The first Homecoming was held on December 3-4, 1948, and consisted of events on Friday and Saturday night.

Throughout the late 90′s and early 21st century Homecoming expanded to include Skit Night and Warchant, a concert held in the Donald L. Tucker Civic Center, attracting over 8,000 students, faculty, alumni, and community members to see nationally recognized headlining acts.

Past performers include Chance the Rapper, Zac Brown Band, Florida Georgia Line, Ludacris, T.I., Pitbull, and Gym Class Heroes. FSU Homecoming is now a full week of events including Spear-It Night, Karaoke for a Cause, Torch Pursuit, Seminole Festival, Parade and Pow Wow. FSU Homecoming 2018 concludes when Florida State takes on the Demon Deacons of Wake Forest for the Homecoming football game. This year’s homecoming theme is “Garnet, Gold, and Glory.”

Pow Wow–the largest pep rally at Florida State and one of FSU’s longest-running traditions–is emceed by Gene Deckerhoff, the voice of the Seminoles, and includes appearances by the FSU Marching Chiefs, FSU Flying High Circus, FSU Cheerleaders, and FSU Golden Girls among other student performances, and the crowning of the Homecoming Chief and Princess.

Pow Wow culminates with a featured comedian. Past performers include Hannibal Buress, Whitney Cummings, Amy Schumer, Jimmy Fallon, Stephen Colbert, Kathy Griffin, Nick Offerman, Kenan Thompson, and John Oliver.
