NASHVILLE, Tenn. - Tennessee State University hosted a week of events leading up to their homecoming football game against Tennessee Tech on Saturday with current students and alumni both gathering on campus.
“It’s one big family affair!" Joni McReynolds, president of the TSU National Alumni Association, said. "We have a lot of fun just seeing everybody that we haven’t seen for maybe a year or two years.”
On Friday, a pep rally was held at TSU with the Aristocrat of bands playing, cheerleaders leading the crowd, and plenty of people reminiscing about their time with the blue and white.
“Where we are today came from TSU, so that’s a lot of pride coming from here. They taught us to be where we are today," McReynolds said.
Alumni from TSU have gone on to achieve great accomplishments, and McReynolds expects that to continue, saying that the future of TSU and the students there is bright. “Very bright. Very bright. Today, tomorrow, and forever.”
Kickoff against Tennessee Tech at Nissan Stadium was scheduled for 4:30 p.m. on Saturday.
