Red Hawks Soar at Homecoming – Literally!

This year’s fun and excitement at Montclair State University Homecoming included a zipline and a high-scoring win

This year's Homecoming included a zipline, among other street fair rides and games.

Despite a rain delay, Saturday marked another Homecoming filled with fun games, good food, tailgating, a street fair and the return of hundreds of Montclair alumni and their families. As always, the Student Showcase did not disappoint, and this year there was even a zipline for the adventurous at heart. And to top it all off, the Red Hawks beat the TCNJ Lions 42-7 in their football matchup.

Check out these scenes from the day:
