Alumni Tailgate

Homecoming Weekend!

Alumni Tailgate

Alumni Tailgate — Saturday, October 22 — Newman Courtyard

All alumni of the St. Thomas More Newman Center are welcome to join us for a tailgate in the Newman Courtyard before the Mizzou vs. Idaho football game on Saturday, October 21. The game time is still to be determined, but the tailgate will begin three hours prior to kickoff.

The event will be FREE to all Newman Alumni and their families, with food and drinks (including beer) available. Donations are certainly accepted both online and in-person. Because the event is FREE, we ask that only those who attended the Newman Center when they were a student (as well as their spouses and children) RSVP for the event. Current Newman undergraduate students are NOT eligible to attend. It’s not that we don’t want to welcome other guests, but we simply won’t be able to afford enough food and beer for everyone. You will be required to check-in at the courtyard gate before being admitted.

Please RSVP to event here.

For questions, please contact Alumni Relations Coordinator, Theresa Nguyen at or 573-449-5424 ext. 204.
