People celebrating Homecoming
There's nothing quite like a beautiful fall day on campus.  Not only is there a hint of chill in the air and the beginning of leaves changing on all the trees, but there are distinctive sounds of laughter, cheers, and roars from homecoming games past. That's right it's the annual homecoming game at The Factory in Rynearson Stadium.
