A few weeks ago I had the pleasure of attending my Alma Mater Florida A&M University’s Homecoming. It was also celebrating my 5 year anniversary for crossing the “burning sands” of Phi Beta Sigma Fraternity Inc. I would say that this was one of my favorite Homecomings I’ve been apart of as an alumni and undergrad. I got to see a lot of old familiar faces and meet some new ones as well.
I had a great time attending the School of Business and Industry’s Mixer. I was able to see old classmates and interact with the current students who are pursuing their dreams. Dean Friday-Stroud had really done a great job of revamping the School of Business and the mixer was a reflection of that. I was really inspired by the speech from fellow alumni Keith Clinkscales, CEO of Vibe Magazine, He stressed the importance of keeping in contact with fellow “SBIans” and that “We are all in this together”.
The rest of my activities were centered around hanging out with my Line Brothers and Fraternity. The Greek day party hosting by Greeks initiated in 2000 and 2005 was awesome, it was good to see fellow classmates doing big things post Famu. Topped it off with a great time attending the Homecoming Step Show and it is always good when we win.
Overall I left Tallahassee refreshed and inspired to push myself more in work and it also reminded me of how much I love and learned from attending Florida A&M University. I’m going to end this post with our famous Rattler Charge:
When the dark clouds gather on the horizon,
When thunder and lightening fill the sky,
When fate is but a glint in the eye of a fallen Rattler,
And hopes are lost friends,
When the sinew of the chest grows weary,
From those hard charging line backers,
And the muscles and the legs grow tired,
From those hard charging running backs.
You must always remember that the
RATTLERS WILL STRIKE, AND STRIKE AND STRIKE AGAIN!
