Remember that one time there was free food at a tailgate? Or when a cardboard Stewie Griffin’s head was at a basketball game? That was all thanks to the Student Eagle Club.
The Student Eagle Club is an organization for students that promotes participation in USM athletics. For $10 per academic year, students can become members of the Student Eagle Club. Membership brings seating in the lower deck of The Rock, a free T-shirt, tailgates, prize giveaways and a discount card that is accepted at several local establishments.
Last year, more than 2,700 students were members of the Student Eagle Club, and the organization donated $7,500 back to the university through the Pride of Mississippi Marching Band and the pep band.
“This year we hope to pass the 3,500 membership mark and donate even more back to the university,”said Stew Deen, the Eagle Club’s graduate assistant. “We are also trying to put together a philanthropy event that would allow students to become involved in the community.”
