Homecoming 2019: Homecoming in the Valley

Welcome back to the Valley.

Over 124 years, this FVSU family has forged an unshakeable bond of love through loyalty, thoroughness, faithfulness, and truth. It is a unity unlike any other, in which Wildcats far and wide take the light from the Valley and hold it up high to illuminate the world wherever they go.

Come back home to celebrate the enlightenment, the camaraderie, the spirit, and the victory at a reunion legendary for the love that flows. Get ready to show Morehouse why FVSU Wildcats are “true blue” and “solid gold.”
