Other Pertinent Information is below;
Due to COVID-19, we must move the event back to campus. This program will be held on Saturday, February 12, 2022, at 11 o'clock am on campus in the Dillard University Professional Schools and Sciences building Georges Auditorium.  The Georges Auditorium seats 400 people and will allow us to properly socially distance for the event. In addition, all attendees will be required to submit proof of vaccination or a negative COVID-19 test within 72 hours of the event prior to entry.  We are limiting the event to 150 people. This will allow us to host the program safely. 


As an honoree, you will receive complimentary admission to the program and the game for you and one guest. Additional tickets will be available for purchase for others to attend. 
In order to meet the social distance guidelines for the game, we have designated the balcony area for our VIPs and reduced the number we can accommodate in the space from 200 to 75.  You will receive admission to the VIP balcony area for you and one guest.  When it is time for your half-time presentation, a Dillard University representative will escort you to the court.
