WSSU Homecoming 2023

Oct 15 - Oct 21, 2023

Chancellor Anthony Graham and the entirety of Winston-Salem State University welcome you to the 2023 WSSU Homecoming.

Events Moving Downtown: Many of the Homecoming 2023 events will be held at the Benton Convention Center in Downtown Winston-Salem. The $57 million renovation investment from the State of NC for our largest campus venue, the K.R. Williams Auditorium has inspired WSSU to Ramatize the entire city even more!

Shuttles to Downtown: Complimentary shuttle buses from WSSU to downtown Winston-Salem will be offered Monday thru Friday. Our shuttle schedule can be found here. Complimentary parking will also be provided on the WSSU campus. 

Parking Downtown: Parking downtown will be extremely limited during Homecoming. We encourage you to utilize the complimentary shuttles.

Please join us in celebrating 131 years of education, excellence, and Ram Pride! We look forward to reconnecting and celebrating this momentous occasion with all our WSSU alumni, family, and friends. Options can be found here for those of you who will need hotel accommodations.
