Bus and Equipment Parking Information
Please consult the information to know where the equipment trucks and buses will be parking in relation to the stadium.
​*Note: As we are a university, we do not have a Booster Organization; therefore, we cannot supply ATVs and Trailers for equipment.

BUS DRIVER / CHAPERONES
The student commons building will be available for bus drivers and chaperons to reside for the day if they would like. It is located at the food court in the Theron Montgomery Building. (Close to the equipment truck parking area) TVs are located throughout the food court area. Unfortunately, since the university is under contract with Sodexo Food Services, we are not allowed to provide food for a hospitality room at any on-campus event. The food court will be open for service; however, it will be at the driver’s/chaperone’s expense.

Below are the food options that will be available while on our campus.

A school check is the only thing that’s nontaxable unless you have a tax exempt certificate for your booster club (99% of booster clubs are taxable).

School check is definitely non-taxed; any other way would most likely be taxable. If you are a nontaxable booster club, we’ll need your certificate 10 days in advance of arrival.
