Alumni, family and friends are invited to join Dean Steven Ott and the Belk College Alumni Council for the seventh annual Belk College Day in the UNC Charlotte Alumni Tailgate Village from 12:30-3:00 p.m. at the Charlotte 49ers football game against the Florida Atlantic Owls on Saturday, September 28 during Homecoming!

Alumni Tailgate Village
Prior to each home football game, the Alumni Association hosts the 49er Tailgate Village. Held at the Hauser Alumni Pavilion - located along 49er Way between Cameron Boulevard and the stadium - the 49er Tailgate Village has become a pre-game tradition.
All Belk College alumni are invited to join us inside the 49er Tailgate Village when the gates open at 12:30 pm. We will have Belk College Day registrants' football tickets and souvenirs at our Belk College of Business tables inside. Be sure to find us inside the Pavilion when you arrive!
The Charlotte 49ers will kick off in Jerry Richardson Stadium very close to the Alumni Tailgate Village at 3:30 pm. All Belk College Day registrants will be seated together in sections 110 and 111.
