Terrier Tailgate is an annual fundraising event typically held off-campus as a night of fellowship, games, and in-person auction. 




The 2022 Terrier Tailgate was held on Saturday, September 10 at the Houma-Terrebonne Civic Center.

A New Space for Saying Grace

This year’s funds raised, in addition to a recent generous donation from the Richard “Dickie” Barker Family, will benefit all our students, faculty, and staff. Event proceeds will supplement the improvements and redesign of the cafeteria to a more collegiate environment. This multi-purpose student union concept is a Terrier Blueprint facilities recommendation. The new student union will provide flexible seating options for dining, offer a space to hold meetings and study groups, and an area for students to grab a snack during instructional breaks.
