The division of Student Affairs is excited to announce that this year’s Homecoming will take place September 27–October 2.

As we prepare to celebrate Homecoming Week 2021, Buffalo State College will also begin celebrating its 150th anniversary. On September 13, 1871, we began teaching students and changing lives, and 150 years later, our Bengals continue to roar! This year’s Homecoming theme, “Let the Good Times Roar…150 Years at Buffalo State College,” embraces the amazing milestone in the college’s history—celebrating all of our students, faculty, staff, alumni, and friends who have been and are a part of our wonderful campus community. As we reflect on our past and look toward our future, join us during Homecoming Week 2021 and keep the good times roaring.

Celebrate with us during Homecoming Week of our sesquicentennial anniversary as we continue to believe, inspire, and achieve at Buffalo State College!

  • Chalk the Plaza!
  • Benji’s 150th Birthday Party
  • The Bengal Connect Student Organization Fair Sponsored by USG
