Temperatures are dropping, football season is heating up and we are getting ready for big things this semester. Tailgates, a birthday celebration, a bonfire and pep rally—and free scantrons! Here’s a quick update on some of SGA’s upcoming initiatives and events:

See You There
sgaallvoltailgateCome to Presidential Courtyard and check out the All Vol Tailgate: Dog Eat Dawg edition at noon this Saturday, September 27. There will be free food followed by a viewing of the UT versus Georgia football game.

SGA and other student organizations invite you to stop by Pedestrian Walkway from 10:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. Friday, October 3 for Smokey’s birthday. Free food and birthday cake will be served starting around 11:00 a.m. There will even be a special appearance from everyone’s favorite mascot!

Mark your calendars because Homecoming is right around the corner! This year, the SGA bonfire and pep rally is partnering up with All Campus Event’s Smokey’s Howl competition on Fiji Island after the Homecoming parade on Friday, October 10. The parade begins at 6:30 p.m. and the bonfire and pep rally will begin immediately after the parade.
