HAMMOND – The families of Southeastern Louisiana University students are invited to participate in the spirited fun of college football tailgating at the university’s annual Family Day, Oct. 6.
"Families play a vital role in the support, guidance and ultimate success of their students,” said President Randy Moffett. “Whether you live right around the corner or countless miles away, we are proud to have your family as a member of our extended Southeastern family. We encourage you to visit campus at any time, and especially urge you to consider joining us for Family Day.”
Family Day packages, $10 per person, include admission to a special tailgate party in Strawberry Stadium at 4:30 p.m. and to the Lions vs. Stephen F. Austin Lumberjacks football game at 6 p.m.
At the Family Day tailgate, families will receive Lion Pride t-shirts, can pose for “party pictures” and group photos, and will be entertained with food, music, and activities for children, including interactive games and face painting. The University Police Department will also offer its free “Kid Care” identification program.
Families are also welcome to join in the festivities in Friendship Circle throughout the afternoon, such as the “Lion Walk,” the football team’s parade through campus to the stadium at approximately 4 p.m.
