ASU celebrates homecoming

by Anna Oakes

Appalachian State University, founded in 1899, celebrated homecoming on Friday and Saturday.

Thousands of alumni traveled to Boone for the annual reunion and festivities, with this year’s New York City-inspired theme being “The Big APPle.”

Events included a pep rally with fireworks on Friday and a parade, tailgate party and football game versus Elon on Saturday.

The graduating classes of 2007, 2002, 1997, 1992, 1987, 1982, 1977, 1972 and 1967 and the Black & Gold Society (classes of 1962 and prior) celebrated reunion years at this weekend’s homecoming.
