NSU vs. MSU Home Tailgate

Come tailgate with us and kick off the first home game against McNeese State University. 

This tailgates theme is the great USA! Live Music will be provided by DJ Leonard Sarpy. 

We will be serving hamburgers, hotdogs, sausage, chili with all the fixings, loaded mash potatoes, and lots of desserts. Special thank you to our Hospitality and Management Culinary students for their hard work in helping prepare food with us. 

Tailgating begins at 3:00 PM and ends at Game Time.

Just like last year, we’ll have a selfie booth, vendors, jumps and obstacles for the kids, the NSU Bookstore, and lawn games! Other amenities include fun jumps, and our famous pack and play. We’ll also be joined this year by and Faculty and Staff Tailgate…the more the merrier!

First Lady, Mrs. Maggio will have a collection site for her ‘Forks Up for Literacy’ campaign at Collins Pavilion during tailgating on NSU home football game days with help from Purple Jackets honor society, the Alpha Beta Alpha library club and other volunteers. Donors can bring items to the tailgate prior to home football games and drop them off at the Pavilion.

Cost to attend is just $10.00 and includes all you can eat food and beverages. All tailgates are FREE for members of the Alumni Association. Not a member yet? Sign up today by visiting our website. Feel free to pay now or at the event.
