Tailgate parties exist to help unify the student body around food, fun & football. While the men of DeVol grill hot dogs and hamburgers, students can play football or prepare for their time cheering with a little face paint.
Homecoming weekend is one of the biggest celebratory weekends for tailgating, and the parties include corn-hole tournaments and great prize giveaways. For the final home game, there are costume contests with gift certificates for best costume.
Throughout the season, tailgate parties contribute to campus by helping several hundred students connect and support our football team.
