  • Corn Maze
  • Michigan Winery Tour

Bowling

BGSO Winter Olympics

You think you're good? Awesome? Unbeatable? Prove it! In March, the BGSO hosts the Winter Olympics at Strikes and Spares in Mishawaka. Try your hand at bowling, mini golf, or go-carts (just don't run the president off the track). The gold medalist in each category wins a prize!


Tailgate

ND Football BGSO Tailgate

This is Notre Dame, after all. Home of Rudy, Rockne, and the most college football championships. Tailgating is the warm-up party with da brats and da burgers. We have an official tailgate with grills before every home game. Stop on by and start the sizzle!
