The SDSU Alumni Association is happy to hear that you are interested in hosting a watch party. A watch party is a great way to bring alumni together in your area.

What is a "Watch Party"?

A "Watch Party" is a predetermined location for Jackrabbits (due to whatever circumstances, can't physically make it to the game) to come together and support the yellow and blue.  Meet up with old friends, make new friends and of course, WATCH THE BIG GAME!

Steps to take to host a party

Step 1:
Is the game on television?

Step 2: Contact a local venue (think of a place that has lots of televisions). Ask if they will air the SDSU Game and if they will allow us to reserve tables and chairs for our alums. Everyone will be on their own for food and beverages.

Step 3: Fill out the form below. Your Watch Party will be posted on the Alumni Association’s website along with an email notification to all the alums in your area. The Alumni Association will mail you a Party in a Box Kit. Your Party in a Box Kit will include SDSU Swag, SDSU table tent signs and a sign-in sheet.

Step 4: Day of the Event: Please arrive at least 20 minutes before hand. Decorate the reserved area with the materials from the Party in the Box Kit. Greet SDSU Fans and ask them to sign the sign-in sheet. If you can please take a few photos. Photos may be used in State Magazine or put on social media.

Step 5: After the Event: Please mail or email sign in sheet to the SDSU Alumni Association along with any photos that you would like to share.
