In August, the University of Louisiana Monroe will host two athletic events on campus that are open to the community and will serve to mark the beginning of the upcoming school year.


These events are as follows.


Ribbon Cutting Ceremony

A ribbon cutting ceremony for the much anticipated Football End Zone Facility will be held on Tuesday, August 2 at 9 a.m. outside the End Zone Facility.


The free event will feature a tour of the new state-of-the-art facility that includes unique graphic designs that reflect university traditions.


The Pursuit

The Pursuit event will be held on Thursday, August 25 at 5:30 p.m. in ULM’s Fant-Ewing Coliseum.


Warhawk patrons, supporters and Athletic Foundation members are invited as ULM launches into the new athletic and academic year.


The event will feature dinner and cocktails.


President Nick J. Bruno will share his vision for the upcoming year, exciting changes happening around campus, and some of ULM’s many accomplishments. In keeping with the P-40 Warhawk theme, the event will also include a highlight of 40 outstanding Warhawks, consisting of top student-athletes, alumni, faculty and staff.


Tickets for The Pursuit cost $50 per person, or $650 for a reserved table of eight. The proceeds from the ticket sales will go toward the Athletic Foundation.
