Time to Tailgate—Friday, September 27

The time-honored tradition of Homecoming is just two weeks away! On Friday, September 27, the Lions Varsity Football Team will take on Northwest Christian at 7:00 p.m. at the west campus Athletic Complex. However, a lot of fanfare and activity will commence first with a Homecoming Tailgate, sponsored by Collision Care Xpress.

While we look forward to reconnecting with our alumni, we also invite our current students and families to join in the action. A free Cub Zone will provide even our littlest lions a fun homecoming experience. In addition, bring cash and a hearty appetite for concessions and The Press food truck that will be onsite. You can also get your Lions gear from the Lions Spirit Shop.

With so much activity, here is the order of events that evening:

  • 5:30 p.m.—“Family Never Graduates” Alumni Tailgate
  • 6:00 p.m.—Alumni Athletic Hall of Honor Ceremony
  • 6:00 p.m.—WA Students and Family Tailgate
  • 6:30 p.m.—Paw Print Parade
  • 6:53 p.m.—National Anthem
  • 7:00 p.m.—Kickoff
  • Halftime—Homecoming Court
  • Post-game—Alumni vs. Faculty Ultimate Frisbee
Finally, the second annual WA Homecoming Dance on Saturday evening will cap-off an exciting, school-spirited week. It’s a great time to be a LION!
