The “Swine-n-Dine” committee was formed in 2010, to help Fisk students attain their dreams of earning Fisk University degrees while providing a venue for good food and fellowship during Homecoming. This year, the committee partnered with the University’s Office of Recruitment and Admission to provide support for ten students by covering their admission fees for enrollment in the fall of 2016.
