Albany - Albany will be painted blue and gold this week, as 25,000 alumni converge on the city in celebration of Albany State University's Homecoming festivities. The event is expected to bring in about $3 Million to the Albany area for the week.
For the first time, the city is investing in the festivities to make ASU alum feel welcome back in Albany. The city had posters printed up and placed within area stores to welcome Ram faithful back home, and plans on decorating even more.
Mayor Willie Adams said, "We are encouraging all of the city, all people in the city to put out the red carpet and make sure when we see the Alumni come back, let's open our arms and greet them back to our fine city."
President Dr. Everette Freeman said, "When they feel a little more welcome, they spend a little more money, they spend a little more time. They bring their friends and their family members back and before you know it, this truly becomes not only a Homecoming for Albany State, but Homecoming for the entire city."
Saturday has been designated as Blue and Gold day in the city. At 9 AM there will be a homecoming parade along Pine Avenue, followed by the kickoff of the big game between ASU and Morehouse at 3 PM.
