Autumn means traditions, and one of UT’s biggest traditions is Homecoming. We’re already in the middle of Homecoming Week, so I hope that you’ve had a chance to participate in some of the spirited programming tied to Saturday’s big day. This year’s theme is A Blast from the Past, with plenty of chances to celebrate the old and the new.
Just one example of things we’re celebrating is happening tomorrow evening – that’s Thursday, Oct. 23 – when the Pan-Hellenic Council and Black Student Union are sponsoring the annual Talent Show in Doermann Theatre starting at 7. Stop at Ask Rocky to get the free voucher you need to attend the show. It’s always an amazing showcase of our gifted and dedicated students.
Of course, I hope to see you at the game on Saturday when we expect to defeat UMass very handily. The game starts at 2, and if you’re looking for excellent tailgating, visit the Substance-Free Tailgate in the Rec Center. It starts at 11:45 and runs until 15 minutes before kickoff. You can get FREE classic tailgate food, plus you can walk away with an exceptional T-shirt by taking a substance-free 30-day pledge.
And it’s worth getting up early to be part of the Homecoming Parade! It starts at 9:30, so I’ll see you there and if I toss you some candy – be sure to wave back!
