2018 Football Tailgates

Washburn football tailgate

Join the Washburn University Alumni Association and Foundation before every home game for food, drink and cheering on the Ichabods! Look for the Alumni Association tent on the northeast side of the stadium, just outside the gate, serving hotdogs, chips and sides. Cold beer and beverages are also available. The event is free for members of the Alumni Association and $5 for non-members.
