Florida State's Homecoming game day kicked off Saturday morning with a breakfast, and the fight song from the man who wrote it, Tommy Wright.

For some alumni, this is a long standing tradition they've been participating in for years.

Betty Lou Joanos said she has been coming to homecoming events, "Since I was a freshman 1953, and Homecoming was very special."

There's one thing all Seminole Alumni have in common.

"We all love this university and so it's great to have something to come back for and something to be proud of," said 2009 Homecoming Princess Shannon Brockman.

This years Homecoming is a bit different, there's a new University President, Dr. Eric Barron, and a new head football coach, Jimbo Fisher.

2010 Homecoming Chief Bobby Seifter said, "There's a real excitement about a new beginning at Florida State. I know the students are very excited about it and I think it has gotten around to the rest of the Florida State community this is the place to be right now at Florida State."

Although there are many new additions to the University, some traditions like 'Nole fans showing their spirit tailgating before the game, and wearing their garnet and gold with pride, remain the same.
