Homecoming is going to look a little different this year, but not to worry, it’s still going down and as always, we’ve got you covered!
In case you missed it, iOne Digital launched its very own HBCU Homecoming experience, #OneYard. From cookouts to step shows, One Yard is an immersive and virtual affair, full of all the events that make Homecoming so lit — and this weekend we’re having a step off. Hosted by actor and Howard University alum, Lance Gross, the show is going to feature three rounds of intense competition between your favorite Greeks, so be sure to tune in.
