Tent City

A long lasting tradition for the Kennel Club since 2006, Tent City is a way to demonstrate your dedicated fandom as a Zag. The Kennel Board will tweet a location on campus that students will race to in order to receive their tenting number, which determines their place in line. Starting the day prior to tip-off, Tent City is set up on either Foley or Herak Lawn and lasts throughout the night.

Grab five friends, put your running shoes on, watch for the tweet, and get ready to run!  GO ZAGS!

Be sure to follow our tweets and Tent City updates via Twitter, @ZagKennelClub
