The first Cardinal Tailgate of the football season is this Saturday, September 12th, starting at 10:00 AM. Custos, Catholic University’s very own spirit tradition holder, is sponsoring this highly coveted event.
Starting with free food, games, and prizes for the most spirited tailgate, this event is one that every member of the CUA community should not miss.
“The Cardinal tailgates are so much fun,” said junior Elementary Education major, Allie Harper, about the tailgate. When asked what she enjoys the most about the event, Harper said, “it is just a great way to promote school spirit during a football game. It pumps us all up and then we go to the game together as a community and we are ready to cheer on our football team.”
Catholic University students are not the only attendees who enjoy this event. Department chairs, faculty members, staff, and even Mr. and Mrs. Garvey accompanied by their beloved dog, Gus, attend this event annually.
Supporting the school football team, eating delicious food, and winning exciting prizes make a great combination for a school event that promotes our spirit and love of CUA.
Get ready to tailgate like a Card with all of your fellow classmates, faculty, and university President, and make sure that you wear red this Saturday
