Flashback Homecoming features alumni tailgate before Oct. 27 game

YPSILANTI - Eastern Michigan University’s Office for Alumni Relations will host its annual “Go Green” alumni tailgate at EMU’s Rynearson Stadium, Oct. 27.

The event starts at 1:30 p.m. followed by a 3:30 p.m. kickoff as EMU takes on in-state rival Western Michigan University.

This year’s tailgate theme is “Flashback Homecoming,” so put on your dancing shoes and 70s gear as EMU takes a trip back to the 1970s disco era with WNIC 100.3.

“Homecoming is always an exciting time on campus, and one of the cornerstone events is the annual “Go Green” alumni tailgate,” said Vicki Reaume, executive director, alumni relations. “This year’s Homecoming is expected to be pretty groovy, as we flash back to the 1970s. We anticipate a large crowd, and with food, entertainment, caricaturists and clowns, there is something for everyone. Our tailgates help build spirit and excitement among fans before game time.”

Homecoming concludes a week of activities on campus. To see a list of other activities, go to the Homecoming website at www.emich.edu/homecoming

Friends and guests are welcome to attend. Donations for the Alumni Scholarship Fund will be collected at the entrance. For more information, contact the Office of Alumni Relations at 734.487.0250 or alumni.relations@emich.edu
