Free #FuturePanther Tailgate:
EIU Invites High School Juniors, Seniors to Participate in Football Event


Eastern Illinois University’s Office of Admissions will host its fourth annual junior and senior high school student tailgate on Saturday, Oct. 8.

Check-in for the event will take place from 3:15 to 3:45 p.m. in Lantz Arena.  High school upperclassmen will receive free football tickets for them and a guest.  (If students have additional guests, they can contact the Office of Admissions to receive discounted tickets.)

After checking in, students will be shown a quick presentation about EIU and the admissions process.  Immediately after, attendees will be offered a tour of Eastern’s campus.

There will also be a special student-led tour of the campus geared toward fans of Pokémon Go.

Beginning at 4:30 p.m., students and families will enjoy the full tailgate experience.  Registered students and their families will receive a complimentary meal provided by WB’s Pub ‘n Grub, who will be cooking on-site and providing refreshments before the 6 p.m. kickoff against the Tennessee State Tigers.

This event is a great opportunity for students to see what life is like as a #FuturePanther. Students can sign up here or contact Brittany Trimble at; 581-2223.

Students and families are encouraged to wear blue to this event and anticipate outdoor weather conditions.
