Alumni Association Set to Host Tailgate at Football Rival Grand Valley

Ferris State UniversityThe Ferris State University Alumni Association will host a “Sink the Lakers” tailgate for alumni on Saturday, Oct. 6 at Grand Valley State University in Allendale.

The tailgate, planned from 4 to 7 p.m. in Lot F on the GVSU campus, precedes the Bulldogs’ 7 p.m. football game against the Lakers at Lubbers Stadium.

Bulldog Radio will play game-day music, and the Alumni Association will provide membership benefit information and giveaways. Although tickets to the football game are sold out, alumni are encouraged to attend for fun, food and to see old friends.

“We typically have about 300 people who join us for the tailgate, and we also share space with gridiron members and family members of current players,” said Brandi Behrenwald, assistant director of Alumni Relations. “It’s a great atmosphere with lots of laughter, loud music and Bulldog pride.”

The tailgate is free, but alumni are asked to RSVP as soon as possible for planning purposes. Alcoholic beverages will not be provided but are allowed in the tailgating area as long as guests follow the GVSU Tailgating Policy:
