  • Reunion Dinner apparel – Business casual
    • 50th Reunion – Business casual
    • Tailgate apparel – Your favorite black and gold outfit!

Are spouses/partners/significant others/children invited?

Absolutely! We encourage returning alumni to bring their entire families. Children 12 and younger are complimentary and do not require a registration fee.

Will my football tickets be mailed to me?

  • Tickets are now digital (e-ticket) that will be sent to your mobile device. To purchase tickets, a link will be emailed out this summer for our block of tickets. You will sign up via the link and a ticket code will be sent to you. For all football ticket-related questions please contact the Athletic ticket office at 1-800-CAT-PAWS
