Student Union hosted the second Game Day event of the year in preparation for the Washington University’s football team’s home game against Illinois Wesleyan University Oct. 20. SU partnered with WUSTL Athletics, Green Dot, Student Affairs, the Olin Business School and United Provisions for the programming.
The tailgate will begin at 4:30 p.m. and end with kickoff at p.m. Given a larger-than-expected turnout at the last tailgate on Sept. 1, Student Union has decided to move the event from outside the Danforth University Center to a new, to be determined location with larger capacity.
Attending a collegiate athletic event, then, is as much about community and a sense of belonging as it is about cheering for first downs. That’s uniquely true at Washington University, where by nature of size, we share a far more intimate setting than that of a 100,000-seat stadium.
The MLB regular season started this Friday, and as most Washington University students know, the St. Louis community thrives during the summer for one reason in particular: the St. Louis Cardinals.
Student Union hosted its first Game Day event, an all-day experience designed to foster school spirit and bring a more traditional college sports atmosphere to Washington University, Saturday.
To drum up school spirit, Student Union will host an event called “Game Day,” centered around the football game against Bridgewater College on Francis Field Nov. 11.
