September

Brew-val Tour

  • Date  September 13, September 27, October 11, November 1; 6-8 p.m.
  • Location  Wicked Barley Brewing Co, Aardwold Brewing Co, Intuition Ale Works, Green Room Brewing

As part of Jacksonville University Athletics' bold new rebrand, JU is inviting alums, supporters and fans alike to join athletics staffers and coaches on the "JU Brew-val Tour" this fall.

Four stops at area breweries are planned for the tour, and fans will have an opportunity to interact with coaches and Dunk'n the Dolphin, win raffle prizes, collect gear with the new branding logos on it and engage with the JU community.

The first stop on the "JU Brew-val Tour" is at Wicked Barley Brewing Company, located at 4100 Baymeadows Road, on Sept. 13. The next stop is Sept. 27 at Aardwolf Brewing Company at 1461 Hendricks Avenue, followed by Intuition Ale Works at 929 E Bay Street on Oct. 11. The final location is at Green Room Brewing, located at 228 3rd Street N, on Nov. 1.

Each tour stop features a happy hour-type setting from 6-8 p.m., with finger foods provided and select coaches present to discuss their team's outlook. The JU Athletics marketing department will be on hand with gear and games promoting the new logo, as well as a raffle opportunity to win basketball season tickets. 

One of the highlights is a "JU Brew-val Tour" branded punch card. Fans earn a punch for each stop of the tour that they attend, and if they earn a punch from all four stops, they can cash it in for a new Jacksonville Dolphins logo branded pint glass.

Dolphin Conversations: “The Multigenerational Workforce”

  • Date  September 20, 6-8 p.m.
  • Location  Seasons 52

At Jacksonville University, engaging in meaningful dialogue is at the heart of what we do. It combines ideas and human interaction, and allows us to better understand each other and the world around us. Some of our JU alumni and parents have volunteered to facilitate Dolphin Conversations around the country to bring fellow Dolphins – and our ideas together.

Dolphin Conversations are designed to be fun! No expertise is required, just a willingness to share and listen.  Conversations may focus on a wide range of relevant topics, not just about the University. Jacksonville alumni are invited to participate in the first event on September 20 at Season’s 52 with facilitator Steve Piscitelli '75. Dinner is Dutch treat. 

Topic: For the first time in history, five generations (The Silent Generation, Baby Boomers, Gen X, Gen Y [Millennials], and Gen Z) are working side by side, each with different leadership and communication styles, professional goals, and workplace expectations. Space is limited - reserve your spot by contacting Pat Reeves at preeves@ju.edu or (904) 256-7202.
