Welcoming the Past, Present and Highlanders Forward sets the tone for Gordon State College's Homecoming 2020. GSC welcomes alumni, students, friends and fans to campus for reunions, tailgating, the parade and Saturday Feb. 8's Homecoming basketball game. A full week of festivities will start on Monday, Feb. 3 with the Painting of the Rock for all students on Lambdin Green at 2 p.m. Monday night includes a Homecoming Bonfire at 7 p.m. at the Athletic Complex to announce the contestants for Homecoming court.

All the pageantry of Homecoming will be on full display during the parade Wednesday, Feb. 5 that starts at the Lambdin Green and ends at the Student Activity Recreational Center. 

While the GSC men's basketball games are the centerpiece of the Homecoming schedule, a full slate of activities over the week will provide students, alumni and college groups with many opportunities to enjoy the festivities. On Wednesday, Feb. 5, there will be bodypainting and a craft booth to show your Highlander pride for spirit night as you cheer on the men’s basketball team against Albany Technical College. On Saturday, Feb. 8, the Highlanders will be on the court again playing Southern Crescent Technical College. Pregame festivities for Saturday's matchup will take place in the SARC and will include a tailgate with food and games.
