The Albanyherald.com has gone blue and gold to support Albany State University during its homecoming festivities this week.
ALBANY, Ga. — If you visit Albanyherald.com this week, you’ll notice that things may look a little bit different.
To show support for Albany State during its homecoming activities, albanyherald.com and The Albany Herald’s Facebook account have changed their design.
Online readers will now see a blue banner across the top of our website with the “Albany” part of our Albany Herald logo emblazoned in gold rather than its typical cyan color.
On Facebook, we’ve changed our timeline to include a special message to all of ASU’s returning graduates.
Historically, ASU’s week of homecoming events is one of Albany’s biggest economic engines, pouring millions of dollars into the local economy as alumni from across the country return to the Good Life City to reconnect with former classmates.
