Saturday, October 1, 12:00 pm - 3:30 pm
SPH Building ground floor (under the overhang & parking lot PP1)

Calling all School of Public Health alumni, retired faculty and staff, and current faculty and staff!

The School of Public Health, along with the SPH Alumni Chapter, is hosting a School of Public Health tailgate before the Maryland vs. Purdue Homecoming game and would love for you to attend! (This event is not intended for current students, unless a student is also a graduate of SPH.)

Why stop by? It's a great chance to catch up with former classmates and professors, as well as to tour the School of Public Health building. Alumni will have the opportunity to reconnect at this free event, as well as enjoy a delicious meal prior to the game! (Game time is 3:30 pm.)

Getting here: Our lot will be closed to parking and vehicle traffic.  If you have not already purchased a parking pass, your best option will be to park at the College Park Metro and take one of the game day shuttles. Free parking is available at the College Park Metro station. This location has a dedicated Quickbus route and is just 5 minutes from campus.

Game attendees are strongly urged to purchase a game day permit in a dedicated football parking area before traveling to campus. However, most campus parking lots and metered areas not specifically reserved for home football games (view parking map for reserved football lots) are free and do not require a permit to park.
