The College of Agriculture and the Ag Alumni Association invite you and your family and friends to join us at our reunion tent on Memorial Mall for wonderful food and fellowship before Purdue’s Homecoming game. Many schools and departments will have displays and tents around the Stadium Mall and various entertainment will be featured on the main stage. For an up to date schedule, check out www.purdue.edu/homecoming.
Our tailgate tent will be located again on Memorial Mall, convenient to parking in the Marsteller or University Street Garages. A pre-game tailgate brunch prepared by Shoup’s Country Catering will be served. There is no formal program, so you can drop by and visit with friends before heading toward the stadium and the other Homecoming exhibits and activities. Everyone is welcome at the tent. Even if you don’t plan to eat with us, stop by to sign in and enter to win some great Purdue prizes.
Dean Jay Akridge will be attending to greet our guests, as will other Purdue Agriculture faculty and staff. Stop by to get the latest news and enter our prize drawings. Our tent will feature exhibits from various departments as well as some exciting Purdue prize give-aways. You do not have to be present to win, and we’ll ship your prizes so you don’t have to carry them to the game.
The homecoming game will match the Boilermakers with the Minnesota Golden Gophers. Football tickets are $46 each and are available in a College of Agriculture block of seats. Unfortunately, this year Purdue is not offering any price break on our group order for this game. If you’d rather order tickets on your own for the same price, you can call the Purdue Athletic Ticket Office at (800) 497-7678.
If you need more information or have questions call the Ag Alumni office: (765) 494-8593.
