Martin University Homecoming 2022

homecoming GRAPHIC (Facebook Post)-2.png

Martin University, Indiana’s only predominantly Black institution (PBI), will see our alumni return to their alma mater to reunite with classmates, celebrate our achievements, and, yes, party. There are homecoming events throughout the state of Indiana, and then there’s Martin University’s homecoming. It’s a family reunion, spirit-filled service to our community, and recognition of all the blood, sweat, and tears that make a degree from Martin worth every step.

Indiana’s one and only PBI will show school spirit starting October 16, 2022, and run through October 23, 2022. Due to the pandemic, homecoming as we’ve known it has been altered. No virtual event could ever take the place of returning to campus, basking in the energy, enthusiasm, and reuniting with friends and classmates. So, this year we want you to mask up, get vaccinated, and come show your Martin pride! GO MARTIN!
