Dear Food Science Alumni, Families, and Friends,

Please join us for our annual Food Science Tailgate on Saturday, October 27th. 

Our tailgate is one of the highlights of the academic year and is sponsored by the Food Science Club, our alumni and friends in the Food Industry Group (FIG), and the Department’s faculty and staff.  A fun event before the game and an opportunity to reconnect with alumni, friends, faculty, staff and students while learning what’s new on campus and in the department.  All tailgate proceeds support the activities of our Food Science Club.  We hope to see you here! 

This year our tailgate will be held prior to the game against the Iowa Hawkeyes. Penn State will celebrate the 100-year anniversary of women in the U.S. Armed Forces when the Nittany Lions take the field against the Iowa Hawkeyes on Oct. 27 for the seventh annual Military Appreciation Game.

Our day will start with the FIG Fall Update Meeting that will include FIG and departmental updates and the presentation of the FIG Student Leadership Awards.  Everyone is welcome and encouraged to attend the FIG Meeting and afterwards mix and mingle with our students, faculty and staff.  The tailgate will feature FIG’s Silent Auction, and a student prepared menu that’s the envy of our college.  We will offer good food, friends, and conversation until it’s time to head to Beaver Stadium to cheer our Nittany Lions on to victory. 

The cost for tailgate tickets is $32 per person and $10 for children ages 6 to 12.  Children under 5 are free. Due to the limited supply of single game football tickets for the Iowa game, you are encouraged to use Ticketmaster to purchase football tickets beginning in July when resale tickets will be available to the general public at Ticketmaster.  Penn State Football tickets are in very high demand so be sure to acquire your tickets once they are available.  The department is no longer handling football ticket sales. If you already have tickets for the game, please still join us for the FIG meeting and tailgate.

We look forward to reconnecting with you on campus.  See you at the tailgate!
