Family Weekend Tailgate draws large crowd

October 01, 2013, Emily Morgan


The College of Business welcomed SIU students and their families at the annual Family Weekend Tailgate, held Saturday, September 28 on Saluki Row.  Approximately 200 business students, alumni, faculty, staff, and family members attended.

Students and their families met and mingled with individuals from the College, while cheering on the Salukis as they took on the Youngstown State Penguins.

Scott Polczynski, a senior Accounting major, was one of many students who attended the tailgate. He said, “I really enjoyed the College of Business Tailgate during Family Weekend. It provided a great opportunity to network with alumni, faculty, staff, and students in a casual setting.”

We would like to invite all of our students, faculty, staff, and alumni to join us once again on Saturday, October 19, for our annual Homecoming Tailgate.  It will be held from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. Come out and enjoy free food and drinks while cheering on the Salukis as they take on the North Dakota State Bison!
