Opportunities to Tailgate with the Alumni Association are running out

Aggie Fans enjoy the donut eating contest that was part of the activities at the Alumni Association tailgate.
If you’ve lost track, take a moment and Google “USU Football.” You’ll see that we have five wins and only two games left, putting us within reach of bowl eligibility. That also means that there are only two opportunities left to join us at one of the Alumni Association tailgates. The Alumni Association will host its last home tailgate this Saturday when Utah State takes on Hawaii. Join us for this free luau tailgate. There will be smoked pork, Hawaiian leis, and a limbo contest. The following weekend we will be in Colorado Springs for the season closer against Air Force. Tickets are required for this tailgate and can be purchased online.
Stop by the Alumni Association’s last home game tailgate for free food and games.


This month’s survey & contest


If you could have a financial whiz teach you any topic, what would it be? USU’s office of Planned Giving would like to provide training for young alumni to help them strengthen their long-term financial security. Financial health is good for you and USU. It helps graduates retire student loans more quickly, save for their children’s college education, and be in a position later in life to give back.

If USU offered some free financial seminars, which topics would be most helpful to you? Please take our four question survey and let us know. The first 10 people to take the survey will receive a USU holiday ornament.


On Saturday, November 18, help Utah State Football salute our soldiers. During the game, local Veterans, Active Duty Military Personnel and First Responder Units will be honored and recognized. You can participate in our "Seats for Soldiers" program which allows USU Athletics to donate tickets to local Veterans and Service Members. USU Athletics has also teamed up with Operation Hat Trick (OHT) to help support our veterans and service members by donating a portion of the proceeds from Aggie/OHT gear sales to the Cache Valley Veterans Association.
