Tailgating may begin at 10:30 AM Saturday morning behind Seth Grove Stadium. We encourage you to tailgate with us or bring your own. For $5 you may purchase a wristband for access to the Red & Blue Alumni Tent where we will provide hamburgers, hot dogs, sides, chips, and soft beverages. Individuals may also tailgate behind the stadium from their vehicles or with the various organizations and groups set-up behind the stadium. Please review the Tailgate Policy for Homecoming Game Day Tailgating as well as RV tailgating.

Stop by and take a look at our great University's past.
Volunteer Service & PhilanthropyOn Friday, members of the SU Alumni Association board of directors will be volunteering at the King's Kettle food bank in Shippensburg. All are welcome to join them. Additionally, each year the SU Student Homecoming Committee chooses a philanthropy to receive a donation consisting of the proceeds from homecoming events and various fundraising activities. This year’s committee has selected the Shippensburg Public Library Capital Campaign to be the 2011 SU Homecoming Philanthropy project. They have recognized the Shippensburg Public Library as an essential component of the Shippensburg Community and would like to help improve the services offered to the entire Shippensburg Community.
