It’s time to show your purple and gold pride. Tennessee Tech Pride Days are here and run through Aug. 31, which is also the first home football game where the Golden Eagles will take on Samford. Purple and gold yard signs are available that say “Tech Pride” and incorporate the state’s notable tri-star symbol.
“Tech Pride Days is about welcoming new and returning students back to campus and the community,” said Bobbie Maynard, Executive Director of Communications and Marketing. “We are using the same design we created last year for the signs since the tri-star element was so popular.”
To help the community celebrate, Tech Pride yard signs are free and available for pick up on campus at the Crawford Alumni Center, and the Campus Information Desk and University Bookstore inside the Roaden University Center. Signs are also available for pick up in the community at the Cookeville-Putnam County Chamber of Commerce in the Leslie Town Centre.
Maynard added to help celebrate, those in the community are urged to visit campus, attend sporting events, concerts and other special activities, or become involved in some of the many community-oriented groups and activities on campus.
“We encourage all local businesses to participate in Pride Days by creating purple and gold window or lobby displays, have a Tech Pride message on your marquee or have their employees where Tech colors,” said Maynard.
Pride Partners are local businesses that support the university by offering some form of a yearlong Tech discount to students, faculty and staff. There is no charge or fee to become a Pride Partner, and the discounts are listed on the university’s web site. New Pride Partners are accepted throughout the year.
