Before you hit the stadium, hit the classroom!
Prior to a number of home football games in October and November, the Alumni Association hosts lectures presented by a select group of faculty. These hour long programs provide alumni and friends with a chance to sample intellectual life on campus prior to catching up with classmates at tailgates and cheering on the Tigers on the gridiron.
