Ladies and gentlemen, it’s that time of year again.

Yup, you guessed it! Homecoming celebrations across the nation are back in full swing, and there’s only one place to be – Howard University.

Over the years, we’ve given you 21 reasons why Howard University’s Homecoming is the greatest homecoming of all time, and a first timer’s guide to surviving Howard Homecoming.

Before proceeding any further, we highly suggest you read the above articles, because they’re basically The Da Vinci Code of #HUHC.

And quite frankly, we can give you 21 MORE reasons why Howard’s is the greatest of all time and more tips on how to survive the lit’ness of the school’s illustrious homecoming, but we think it’s best for us now to educate those who will venture to “The Mecca” during such a hectic and festive occasion.

The gems we’re about to bestow upon you constitute your guide to #HUHC success. If you set out to the nation’s capital on a wing and a prayer, we’re warning you now: you may end up disoriented, disgruntled, and broke – very, very, broke.
