Wave Chat

September 12, 2013


Dear Green Wave Fans,

Today's Wave Chat is being sent from Ruston, LA, where our football team takes on Louisiana Tech this evening. The game can be seen on Fox Sports 1 beginning at 6:30 pm CST. Even though last week's game wasn't the outcome we expected, there is no questioning the toughness and commitment of this team and coaching staff.

I've been travelling often over the last few months and visiting with some amazing and generous alumni. Today I'm happy to report that sales for the Medallion Circle of the Jill H. and Avram A. Glazer Family Club are now 70% complete, up from 40% a month ago. Soon we will announce our public launch for the Shield Level in the Glazer Family Club as well as an update for seating in the rest of Yulman Stadium. Be sure to check out our online brochure here.

In other news, I'm pleased to welcome three new head coaches to the Tulane family this year. Katie Robinson, Swimming & Diving, joins us from Rutgers University. Katie, a 14-time All-America at the University of Texas during her undergraduate years, has only been with us a few months yet has hit the ground running. Wayne Holly, who comes to us from Brown University, is our new head coach of Sand Volleyball and has been a key contributor to the 8-0 start of our indoor women's volleyball season. Additionally, our nationally ranked women's golf program has a new leader, Lorne Don. Lorne joins us from Michigan State. With some incredible newcomers I know our golf program will continue to be ranked among the nation's best. Please join me in giving them all a warm Tulane welcome.

Finally, please make sure you all make your plans for Homecoming, Reunion and Family weekend. It all begins Thursday night, October 3, with our Hall of Fame induction of a special class, followed by Friday night's 12th annual Helluva Hullabaloo Auction. The weekend culminates in our last Homecoming game in the Dome vs. North Texas Saturday afternoon. One of my favorite weekends of the year - the auction is Tulane's largest single fundraiser - and I hope you'll join Brenda and me at all of these wonderful events.

As Always, Roll Wave,

Rick Dickson
Director of Athletics - Tulane University

P.S. While the actual auction takes place on October 4, we have a wide array of online items up throughout the year - there are some great ones available now but please check back for even bigger ones as October gets closer!
