Dear Political Science, Criminal Justice, and Public Administration alumnus,

We would like to extend an invitation to you and your family to stop by the Department of Government and Justice Studies Homecoming Tailgate party on Saturday, October 11th from noon to 2pm. The event will take place directly in front of the main entrance to Anne Belk Hall (formerly the Belk Library) right near the old bell. The building's awnings will allow us to host the event rain or shine. We will have various grilled items, snacks, drinks, and at 1pm an epic battle of bag toss between our faculty, students, and alums. Please contact Phillip Ardoin ( if you are interested in competing on the alumni team!

The department has made some exciting changes and grown considerably over the past several years. This will be a great opportunity to reconnect with your former Political Science, Criminal Justice, and Public Administration professors and to meet many of the outstanding professors who have recently joined our department. We hope to have many of our retired professors in attendance as well. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact Phillip Ardoin ( or call the department office (828-262-3184).

Best wishes and Go Mountaineers!

Phillip j. Ardoin
