Albany State homecoming welcome signs going up

October 25, 2007

Albany -- Albany's turning blue and gold. An Albany State homecoming banner was put up across the arch on Ogelthorpe Boulevard downtown.

The stores and restaurants are decorated with blue and gold ribbons, and signs proudly that this is the home of the Rams and Albany State University.

The City of Albany is reaching out to Albany State, and trying to brand Albany as a "university town."

Businesses are putting up signs welcoming the expected 25-thousand visitors coming this weekend for ASU's homecoming, that will generate millions of dollars in economic benefit.
