Get Ready to Tailgate!

Author: Angela Sienko


You wouldn’t know it by the amount of construction surrounding Notre Dame Stadium (part of the Crossroads Project), but the beginning of Irish Football season is just weeks away, and that can mean only one thing: Tailgating!

As in past years, Mendoza College of Business Graduate Alumni Relations is pleased to partner with the John Cardinal O’Hara Society to offer business alums the opportunity to tailgate for three games this season, beginning with the Georgia Tech game on Sept. 19, 2015.

Mendoza alumni and their families are invited to enjoy plenty of food, games and camaraderie in the Naimoli Courtyard, which is just located near the south entrance to the Mendoza College of Business (just look for the Mendoza schooner statue!)  

If history is any indication, you will be mingling with approximately 1,000 fellow alums and guests as you get ready to cheer on the Notre Dame Football team on the gridiron.

The other two Mendoza Alumni Tailgates will take place Oct. 17, when the Irish take on USC, and Nov. 14 when Wake Forest comes to campus.

To register for this or any of this year’s tailgates, go to the Notre Dame Business Graduate Alumni Relations tailgate registration website and enter the information for you and your guests. Admission to the tailgate is $5 for alumni and guests who pre-register by 5 pm (EST) the Wednesday before the game and $10 for those who register at the door.

Admission to the tailgate is free for O’Hara Society members and their guests. The John Cardinal O’Hara Society, which sponsors our tailgates, recognizes and thanks those members of the Notre Dame family who provide our graduate programs with a high level of annual support. The support provides funding for fellowships and the Interterm Intensive Program for current students, the flexibility to enhance the school’s curriculum, and a greater ability to serve Notre Dame’s business graduate alumni.
