This year’s homecoming week week was one of firsts: the first homecoming held in the fall and the first homecoming tailgate before the men’s basketball game.
The week’s festivities started on Nov. 8 with a homecoming kick off in the student commons and continued with events every day.
Last Thursday Richmond Coliseum hosted Ram Fest, which featured JMSN, Bad Rabbits, Rae Sremmurd and PARTYNEXTDOOR.
But the festivities were all building toward the basketball games on Friday. For the first time Harrison and Marshall Streets were shut down before the men’s game to host a tailgating event with food and beer trucks, and live entertainment.
Once the game started a jumbotron was raised on Harrison Street that streamed the game live as VCU defeated Prairie View A&M University.
