Warrior Game Day Experience for Students

Starting two hours before each football home game, the Warrior Game Day Experience (WGDX) is an event to boost campus and fan spirit and create an exciting atmosphere.

It's a great way to:

  • connect with friends
  • grab some food from local food trucks
  • enjoy music, contests, inflatables, and other activities
  • get pumped up with fellow Warrior fans to cheer our team on to victory
