GSW Homecoming events happening as scheduled this weekend

AMERICUS, Ga. (WALB) - This week’s rain forced one South Georgia university to cancel a few homecoming events.

Georgia Southwestern State University officials had to cancel two events on Thursday because of rain.

But Angela Smith with the Alumni office said that hasn’t dampened spirits.

She said the rest of the homecoming activities will happen as scheduled.

Smith said they are looking forward to this weekend’s weather.

“We’re really excited about the number of alumni that will be back on campus, the variety of ages that will be back on campus and of course we’re very, very grateful for the sunshine that we will see tomorrow,” said Smith.
