Join the Parade
NCCU welcomes everyone to join us on Saturday, Oct. 31, at 9 a.m. as the University hosts its annual Homecoming Parade. It promises to be an exciting display of show-stopping bands, local organizations and businesses, and NCCU groups
We encourage you to be part of the fun by entering your group or organization in the parade. It is a great opportunity to show off your skills or advertise your goods and services. All vehicles/units must pay the non-refundable registration fee. The charge for NCCU Registered Student Organizations is $30, the charge for other on-campus groups is $45, and the charge for off-campus groups is $60. Please note each vehicle/unit in the parade will be charged. For example, a fleet of antique cars will be $60 each, not $60 for the entire group.
