Coming Home: A Celebration of Strength on the First Coast

11:00 a.m. As you have all seen or personally experienced, Hurricane Matthew significantly impacted our region. We count our blessings that the resilient Northeast Florida community is recovering and moving forward.

We will host a Tailgate Lunch at 11:00 a.m. in the Grove - adjacent to the Dolphins home territory - to rally fans for the JU vs. Drake football game, kick-off at 1:00 p.m. The tailgate will feature free food for the first 500 guests and live music, no registration necessary. We thankfully welcome all first responders from law enforcement, fire and rescue, and paramedics as well as linemen and electrical authority employees to join our JU family for this celebration. Also keep an eye out for the Bloodmobile, which will be on campus Saturday, and keep an ear out for our announcement of the JU community's donation to the First Coast Relief Fund! Admissions will be holding an Open House on Saturday as well - contact for more information. See schedule of events and full details here.
