The College of Arts & Sciences will host its Fourth Annual Alumni Tailgate prior to the Texas Tech-Oklahoma Football game on Saturday, November 3. The college's most popular alumni event of the year is a great way to connect with fellow A&S alumni and friends. 

This year's tailgate will begin at 4 p.m. and will be held on the North Lawn of Holden Hall. Advance tickets are $15 and can be purchased online while walk-up tickets will be $20. Kids 12-and-under are free. Admission includes an all-you-can-eat buffet, beer and wine.

There will be plenty of televisions to catch all the action of other college games across the country as well as live music from Marshall Stevens and The Trespassers.

Cagle Steaks & BBQ, McPherson Cellars and Anheuser-Busch are generous sponsors of the event and will be providing the food and beverages.

All proceeds benefit the A&S Fund for Excellence.
