As a thank you for your service and dedication to Vanderbilt University, Vanderbilt University Human Resources invites employees and their families to attend the Saturday, Oct 8 Vanderbilt vs. Ole Miss football game. This is Vanderbilt’s Homecoming game. Gates open at 1 p.m. Kickoff will be at 3 p.m.

Tickets are free to University employees and their families but must be reserved in advance. There are 1,500 tickets available, and each employee may reserve up to four tickets. Employees will also receive a free concessions voucher and a free refillable souvenir cup upon entry to the stadium.

Employees may select one of the two concessions voucher options. Option 1 includes fries and your choice of one cheeseburger, chicken tender or hot chicken tender basket. Option 2 includes one small popcorn and either a hot dog or nachos. Employees will need to visit the concession stand that sells the items they want in order to select option 1 or option 2 as not all concession spots carry the same items.

ASCEND Federal Credit Union will also give a free Vanderbilt Football t-shirt to the first 600 employee attendees.
