Homecoming Announces 2017 Theme: Embrace The Journey, Roar With Pride

Homecoming announced the theme for Homecoming 2017 is “Embrace The Journey, Roar With Pride” today at the Bryce Jordan Center during THON. The logo will be unveiled at the Blue-White game on April 22.

This year’s Homecoming week will occur unseasonably late, from Sunday, November 5 through Sunday, November 12. It will also be held in conjunction with Penn State’s annual Military Appreciation Week. Both occasions will be recognized at the November 11 football game against Rutgers. The kickoff time for the game has not been announced yet.

“We are excited to finally share the 2017 Theme with the entire Penn State community. By doing so we are also able to share the message behind the Theme. Penn State students come from different backgrounds and have their own Penn State journeys, but nevertheless we are all Penn Staters and come together to celebrate our shared pride in our university. We are Blue and White for life.” said Anuja Jonnalagadda, Royalty Director for Penn State Homecoming 2017.

Throughout the week, Homecoming will host other activities for students the Best of Penn State Carnival, Pollock Party, and the For the Glory Talent Show. Next year’s THON theme will be announced during the annual Homecoming parade Friday night, November 10.
