Homecoming 2014 Theme Announced: Honor the Purpose, Carry the Pride

The Homecoming Executive Committee just announced that the theme for the 2014 is “Honor the Purpose, Carry the Pride”

“The Homecoming Executive Committee has worked tireless to create a theme we feel best represents Penn State and its community. Choosing the theme is the first task the Executive Committee is charged with and this year we all feel a really special connection to the theme and we Hope Penn state loves it as much as we do.” said Emily Miller, Organization Relations Director.

Homecoming it set to take place the week of September 20, leading up to the football game against Northwestern on September 27.

Homecoming 2014 is significant in that it’s the first time since 1973 that it be held in the month of September. Penn State football went 12-0 that season and won the Orange Bowl, and John Cappelletti won Penn State’s first and only Heisman Trophy.

This is the second time in three years that Northwestern will be the Nittany Lions’ Homecoming opponent. In 2012, Penn State outscored Northwestern 22-0 in the fourth quarter en route to a 39-28 victory over the previously undefeated Wildcats.

Other important information related to Homecoming Week – like the concert, and the Grand Marshal – won’t be announced until later this year or in 2014.
