Lubbock Christian University to host thousands of alumni, family, and friends for event filled homecoming weekend on Feb. 8-11.

Where most universities situate their homecoming festivities around a football game in the fall, LCU celebrates in the spring by centering their weekend on the nationally recognized Chap and Lady Chap Basketball teams.

Another long standing tradition of homecoming is Master Follies, a musical variety show and competition that began in 1958. This tradition that has reached its 60th anniversary was once created by a professor to raise funds to buy a new piano for the university and has turned into a campus wide celebration of creativity and the arts. This year, LCU Master Follies will be sponsored by Thacker Jewelry.

LCU's homecoming weekend holds various traditions and events, allowing alumni, students, faculty, staff, and friends to have many opportunities to get involved.
