2019 Homecoming Set for Oct. 19

As Governors State celebrates 50 years of education and innovation, Homecoming 2019 promises to be exciting with a week's worth of fun activities and events.

Jefferson Starship's 50 Years of Rock Show will launch the celebration on October 19 at the GSU Center for Performing Arts.

The rock band emerged in the 1970s, just a few short years after GSU was founded in Chicago's Southland. Organizers thought it was appropriate bring in entertainment that would resonate with the university's first graduates.

Other Homecoming highlights include Throwback Tuesday, inviting Jaguars to dress from their favorite decade, followed by a soccer game, and then a "Sneaker Ball," in which attendees will pair fancy dresses and suits with sneakers on Oct. 26.
