Listed below is a sample of what’s being planned for that weekend. Click here to visit the Alumni Affairs Web site for an up-to-date schedule of events and to register for certain events.

Second Annual Tailgate Contest!
Get those competitive juices flowing, because Alumni Association members will again be sponsoring a tailgating contest in the following categories:

  • Most Elaborate Tailgate
  • Most School Spirit Tailgate
  • Most Unusual Tailgate

Tailgate must be set up by 10:30 a.m. Winners will be notified by 11:30 a.m. and will have their tailgate and group picture highlighted on www.tcnjmagazine.com!

Free Tent Space: Do you have a group of friends, sorority sisters, fraternity brothers, or organization members who want to get together at homecoming, but get here too late to get a spot or don’t have a tent? We will supply a 10’ x 10’ tent and one table for you to use for your group/organization’s tailgate. Space is limited, so only the first 10 groups that click here to fill out the online application and submit the refundable $200 deposit (via check, made out to TCNJ Alumni Affairs, or credit card) will be able to secure the location.

Parking Info: General parking for Homecoming is located in the Lions’ Stadium Parking Deck. Alumni who wish to tailgate should park in Lots 2–5. RVs are not allowed in parking lots.
