Dr. Sharon L. Gaber is inviting students, faculty and staff to the President’s Backyard Barbecue Thursday, Sept. 24, from 11:30 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Centennial Mall.
Stop by and have a shredded beef, shredded chicken or vegan sandwich, along with chips and cookies. Lemonade and water will be available to drink.
Rocky and Rocksy will be at the event, along with the Blue Crew.
WXUT-FM 88.3, the student radio station, will crank up the music.
And there’ll be pedal cars provided by the ROTC Program and the Ohio Army National Guard, as well as caricature artists and inflatable games.
Come out and pick up a free inauguration T-shirt while supplies last.
The Office of the President and the Division of Student Affairs sponsor this annual event, which promises to be even more special this year.
“We have so much to celebrate — the inauguration of President Gaber and the incredible play of our Toledo Rockets on the football field,” Dr. Kaye Patten Wallace, UT vice president of student affairs, said. “Students and employees are invited to come together and show their pride in their University.”
If the weather doesn’t cooperate, the event will take place in the Student Union Auditorium.
