Tailgating has long been a tradition at Wesley, particularly in celebrating Homecoming Weekend, and it is one the College hopes to continue as a safe and positive experience for all. We hope you will enjoy time before the game to catch up with old friends and fellow alumni and then join us on the field as the Wolverines continue the winning football tradition.

Each year at Homecoming, we offer package options to enhance the convenience and value of your pre-game experience at the Wolverine Village Tailgate Area and as a game-time spectator. These package deals with reduced pricing (and reserved tailgating parking spots) will only be available for those that pre-register before October 2. You will need to go to Check-In to pick up your  pass/tickets. Check-in will take place from 10:00 a.m. -1:00 p.m. at the Alumni Tent across from Scott Miller Stadium.
