Fun Tailgating Activities Planned Thursday at SWOSU


Many fun events are planned this Thursday, September 5, at Southwestern Oklahoma State University in conjunction with the kickoff of the 2013 football season.

The SWOSU Bulldogs kick off 6 p.m. on Fast Lane Field at Milam Stadium, and Residence Life has many pregame festivities planned on the Weatherford campus.

The events will begin at 2 p.m.  in the parking lot directly west of the stadium. ResLife’s tailgate party features a mechanical bull, zip line and live band. Code Blue, SWOSU’s “fan-bulance,” will be on site, and Jiggs barbecue and drinks will be served under “The Dome” to Residence Life students free of charge and to all other students and the public for $5.

All student organizations and fans are invited to join ResLife and the Collegiate Activities Board in tailgating. The Pride of the Great Southwest, SWOSU’s marching band, will perform prior to the game just west of the stadium.

The Bulldog football team will be hosting nationally-ranked Harding (AR) University. Admission to the game is free for individuals with an SWOSU I.D., $7 for others and free for individuals 11 and under.

Seventh Street will be blocked on the SWOSU campus beginning at 3 p.m.
