Dear WSSU Campus Community, 

We are all looking forward to the Winston-Salem State University Forever Red 2018 Homecoming festivities. During the week of October 14-21, the WSSU Ramily will come together for musical performances, alumni gatherings, parades, tailgating, and the football game against Livingstone College.
