UT President hosts backyard barbecue

Dr. Sharon L. Gaber will host students, faculty and staff at the President’s Backyard Barbecue Thursday, Sept. 24, from 11:30 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Centennial Mall.

Rocky and Rocksy will be at the event, along with the Blue Crew, to enjoy a shredded beef, shredded chicken or vegan sandwich, along with chips and cookies and lemonade and water to drink.

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.

A pep rally for Rocket football will be held at noon as part of the celebration to build excitement for the upcoming game Saturday against Arkansas State in the Glass Bowl.

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.
