The Second Annual Tip-off Tailgate was held on Saturday, Jan. 12 for the Men’s Basketball game against St. Joseph’s. This national award winning event invited over 10 student organizations to sponsor a tailgate which had over 500 students in attendance, filling the student section and allowing for a great time at the game! There were several activities at the tailgate for students including: a photo booth, a balloon artist, an opportunity to make cards for troops (courtesy of the Student Veterans Association), corn hole and face paint. Those in attendance also had a chance to enter to win many prizes, i.e., Ski Passes to Seven Springs Mountain Resort, an iPad 2 and a chance to throw a half-court shot to win a car (courtesy of Dean Honda)! Student organizations were also encouraged to compete in a banner competition to showcase their organization and school spirit – the banners were judged by Duquesne alumni themselves before the game began. This is an event for students, created by students, and a great way to embrace their Duquesne pride!
