Everybody’s Tent, hosted by the Ole Miss Associated Student Body, will be set up at four Ole Miss football home games this fall.
OXFORD, Miss. – Everybody’s Tent, hosted by the University of Mississippi Associated Student Body, is just that: a place where any Ole Miss student is a welcomed tent member.
Everybody’s Tent will be set up in the grass along the Student Union Plaza, tucked as close to the Walk of Champions arch as possible. Free food, nonalcoholic drinks and entertainment will be provided from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday (Sept. 13). The group started in 2013 as a student-led, student-organized tailgate and was born from a student’s desire to help make everyone feel welcome in the Grove.
“Everybody’s Tent serves our community by creating an inclusive, welcoming environment for people from all walks of life,” said William Fowler, a senior majoring in integrated marketing communications and one of the founding members of Everybody’s Tent. “Since last year, Everybody’s Tent has become a hub for fans navigating the Grove on game days.”
Alumni, faculty, staff and friends are also invited to stop by Everybody’s Tent to meet students and welcome newcomers to the Ole Miss family. Members of the ASB cabinet will be on hand to distribute the popular “I am a Rebel” stickers.
Everybody’s Tent will be in the Grove for the following games:
- Louisiana-Lafayette, Sept. 13, 11a.m-2 p.m.
- Memphis, Sept. 27, times TBA
- Tennessee (Homecoming), Oct. 18, TBA
- Auburn, Nov. 1, TBA
ASB also plans to have directors and presidents from various campus organizations stop by to talk with new students interested in getting involved in Ole Miss student groups.
The group appreciates donations to help Everybody’s Tent continue to grow. Four different levels of sponsorship opportunities are available. For more information, visit http://dos.olemiss.edu/org/umasb/ or like them on Facebook.
