Virtual Tailgate


Saturday, Oct. 3rd

Your friends. In your own Zoom. With potential guests & surprises!

Unfortunately yet understandably, tailgating as usual before the Homecoming football game will not be permitted this year. But...who says that needs to eliminate tailgating altogether?! 

  • Don't let the feeling of reuiniting with your classmates and Doane employees from your era (or today) go by - create your own tailgate online!
  • Create a virtual tailgate of your own for you and your friends! 
  • Stream this year's football game against Dakota Wesleyan while you tailgate! (Older, memorable games will ALSO be available to stream!)
  • Download Virtual Zoom backgrounds to bring the "tailgate" to life, follow along with special announcements on social media, take pictures of your group, etc.
  • With your Tailgate registration, you'll be entered to win one of many "surprises" that may be delivered to your house as well as surprise guests from Doane that just might pop into your tailgate!
