ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

It's homecoming week at Albany State University, the biggest week of the year for Albany's economy.

Students and alumni packed the gym for the annual Battle of the Halls Step Show.

ASU's HPER Gym was nothing short of a scene from Stomp the Yard, with teams competing for bragging rights.

The first act came out stomping in their black and white attire to match their Men & Black theme.

There were three freshmen teams and two residence halls competing against one another.

After auditioning, each team practiced for a month.

Students are excited about the events throughout the week.

"Homecoming week is basically like the tradition here at the university. It's where all the students, freshmen, sophomores, juniors, seniors come together to celebrate the history that we have here at Albany State University," said Maya Palmer.

"I'm looking forward to the coronation of the 74th Miss Albany State University Janeiquia Meredith. It will take place Thursday. I'm so excited to crown seeing that I am the former queen of Albany State, I'm so excited to crown her," said Iandria Joseph.

Other events include Wednesday's skate night at Stardust, Rams appreciation day on Thursday, the homecoming convocation on Friday. And of course the homecoming parade and football game on Saturday.

ASU is expecting to have 25,000 people visit its campus over the week.
