Fall Fest is an annual event introducing incoming students of color to student organizations, faculty/staff, University departments, and Columbia businesses. The event features performances by the National Pan Hellenic Council (NPHC) Greek Organizations, tables about various organizations and departments, and local Columbia businesses such as barbershops, hair salons, and churches.
The Homecoming Events are designed to incorporate the Black student experience into Mizzou’s overall Homecoming experiences by bringing together alumni, students, faculty and staff in a relaxing social context that fosters networking and interaction across generations. The Homecoming Events include the Homecoming, the Mizzou Tigers Homecoming football game, as well as Legion of Black Collegians and the National Pan Hellenic Council social events.
