We Anoint a King Dad

During Dads Weekend, we select and honor the King Dad; students are invited to nominate their dads and tell us why they think their dad deserves to be King Dad for the weekend. Our board reviews all the nominations and chooses one deserving individual, who gets the royal treatment for the entire weekend, including a hotel room at the Union, breakfast with the Chancellor, luxury suite tickets to the football game with recognition on the field and on the Jumbotron during the game, tickets to all our events and swag.
