Hey Everyone, It feels longer than 3 weeks since we last met for a tailgate. Thankfully the wait is almost over. This Saturday the Iowa Hawkeyes take on the Northwestern Wildcats and we will be tailgating in the morning before the game. The Hawkeyes are on a bit of a losing streak and need a win this week to have any hope for a bowl game. Thats why I need you to come out this Saturday morning to get the day started off right. This week we may also have a special guest! Tippie alum Bill Rue (now at Bayer) plans to stop by our tailgate to chat with students. Make sure you wear your networking shoes and get a chance to pique Bills brain. The weather forecast looks pretty good for this weekend as well. Lets hope the rain and snow of the last few days is gone for a little while. Details you need! What: Tippie MBA Tailgate When: Saturday, Oct 26th starting at 7:30am Where: SE corner of the Dental Building Parking Lot, Why: Bill Rue, friends, fun, and food! Go Hawks! Sean Sean D.
