Who's Ready For Some Football!?

Yeshiva Unviersity recently posted a particularly clever video on youtube that advertises their upcoming homecoming event that will take place on Sunday, September 18th, starting at 9:30 AM.

I remember seeing someone post a picture of grass quadrangle (the only legitimate grassy area on campus) a few weeks ago on Facebook. I thought it was a prank of some sort, but this turned out to be quite cute.

For those readers who didn't attend a secular high school with a football team, homecoming is generally a big get-together event shortly after the school year starts in the fall where alumni, students, teachers, and their families visit their alma mater and attend a big Friday night home game. Sufficed to say, I never went to one in high school, but the notion that YU is trying to live up to the hype of a stereotypical homecoming is pretty darn funny.

The entire event looks like it's going to be a lot of fun, and a great opportunity to hear shiurim as well as visit the campus for anyone who hasn't been around in a while. More information, including a schedule of events, can be found here.


  1. DO you have to be an alumni to attend?

  2. Well, the main page (the last link in the post) addresses "Alumni, Students and Friends…" so I guess any non-student or alumni who is interested could be considered a "friend." Why not go check it out?

  3. im not so familiar with YU, boys only?

  4. YU is composed of a men's and women's schools, called Yeshiva College and Stern College respectively. I think the event is for both, check out their site for more info.
