Fall Homecoming

At the heart of Panhandle State heritage is fall homecoming. The local communities, Panhandle State alumni, current students, faculty and staff, in addition to prospective students join in celebrating the #WeArePanhandle family. Homecoming events vary but traditionally the homecoming parade float competitions, Panhandle Royalty, and door decorating competitions are annual events.

The 2019 Homecoming Theme is “Carnival”
