With Homecoming just a few days away, here’s what’s on tap for this weekend at LIU Post. Starting Thursday night, there is the 10th Annual Athletic Hall of Fame Induction as well as the celebration of the 50th anniversary of the radio station.
The next evening, there is a barbeque for alumni and friends and then a reception with President Cline. After those festivities, the attention is turned to the pep rally, which takes place at 7 p.m.
There will be plenty of alumni on hand, but one who will definitely be there is the 2015 recipient of the Distinguished Alumnus Award, Joe Gatto. Gatto is famous for being one of the four stars on the smash hit television show, Impractical Jokers. After the pep rally, the attention of many turns to the matchup on the football field; but not before some tailgating.
In the much anticipated football game, LIU Post welcomes Merrimack College to Bethpage Federal Credit Union Stadium. The matchup should be very intense and tightly contested.
The Pioneers will look to rebound after a tough loss against American International College, but they will have a lot of friends on their side. Plenty of alumni and students are expected to attend and see a great game.
