Homecoming Tailgate

Homecoming & Family Weekend

October 6, 2018

Homecoming & Family Weekend is the perfect time for a Humboldt trip. It's packed with special events and activities for the whole family. It'll be more fun than a group of lumberjacks on one of those balance-on-a-log-in-the-water competitions. Really.
