The time has finally come, football season is back. Our school spirit will be on full display at Graduate Gamedays—special events packed with local pop-ups, tailgating favorites and can’t-miss fan moments. Here’s a quick rundown of what we have planned for the season.

Game Day by the Bay

Graduate Annapolis is the place be for Mids fans. Come hungry and enjoy tailgating classics like burgers, hot dogs and ribs along with local beer from a Boat Bar pop-up close by. But wait, there’s more—live music from DJ Fo4 plus cornhole, foosball, pool and giant Jenga will keep you entertained before kickoff. Don’t have tickets to the game? Pull up a chair and watch the game from one of the eight large-screen TVs in Trophy Room while you grab a drink.

Go Wild with Wildcats

Located just steps from Main Gate Square, Graduate Tucson is the perfect spot to join in on Bear Down Friday festivities. Savor a cold drink from the hotel’s Poindexter patio bar while you cheer on the Pride of Arizona marching band and then stir up some friendly competition with a game of cornhole or giant Jenga. We hear that Wilbur and Wilma might be in the area, so keep your eyes peeled for fellow Wildcats.

Game On, Gophers

Game day at Graduate Minneapolis will be anything but mini. Every home game weekend, school spirit will be on full display in the lobby at Home Game Market, a collection of Minnesota alumni-owned shops. Stay fueled with a drink and a bite (or two) at the nearby pop-up bar or stop into The Beacon to enjoy a beer with fellow Gopher fans. On game day, the Graduate Minneapolis team will also be at Ski-U-Mania Pregame Parties with a giant coloring game, the perfect activity for even the littlest of fans.

A Cutt Above the Rest

Dumb and Dumber fans rejoice—our iconic Mutt Cutts van is hitting the road once again for football season. That’s right, it’s back with gameday giveaways, photo ops, merch and more. Keep an eye on our social channels to see where we’ll be parking this puppy (get it?).
