Titan Tailgate Celebration

Who goes to a football game without Tailgating? Sounds absurd doesn’t it? You’re in luck because Reeve Union is hosting the titan tailgate from 11 am-1pm. Concerned about finding good parking for Homecoming? Buses will be providing transportation at Noon from Reeve to the Titan Stadium. Reeve will also have food, drinks, and plenty of fun activities available for FREE. This is a great opportunity to see the University at work creating a fun day for everyone!
 

Sporting Events

It’s time to Titan Up! Titan Stadium is about to be packed with both action and fans. Two of UWO’s powerhouse teams are playing on the big stage. This will be a great time for you and your family to rep that gold and black.
