Join us for a homecoming Porch Party

Alumni enjoyed themselves at last year's Porch Party.

The College of Humanities and Social Sciences is teaming up with the Poole College of Management to host a Homecoming Porch Party.

Join fellow NC State alumni, their families, faculty, current students, staff and friends of the colleges on the front steps of Nelson Hall to enjoy refreshments, play games and watch the 2015 homecoming parade.

Featured attractions include the Poole Porch Pickers (a bluegrass band featuring Poole College alumni and staff), a special kids zone hosted by the NCSU Libraries and a photo booth.

The fun starts on the front steps of Nelson Hall on Friday, October 30, 2015, at 4:00 pm and runs until 7:00 pm. The homecoming parade starts at 6:00. Parking is available at the Dan Allen parking deck, located at 110 Dan Allen Drive, Raleigh, NC 27607.

“For the past 11 years, Poole College of Management has hosted an outstanding homecoming event for their alumni and friends,” said Jeff Braden, dean of the College of Humanities and Social Sciences. “Their Porch Party has provided a great way to watch the NC State homecoming parade. Our college shares a heritage and many overlapping alumni with the Poole College. So we are delighted to partner with Poole and invite all our alumni and friends to join in this fun and special celebration.”

It’s all free, and you’re all welcome. We just ask that you register by October 26 so we can plan accordingly. Go Pack!
