Head Football Coach Carl Pelini spoke to several Greek organizations on campus Sunday.
Sept. 16, 2013
With football coming off of a huge win over USF on Saturday, there is (understandably) a lot of excitement surrounding Saturday's first home game. Adding to that excitement are all the events going on in conjunction with the game. Shortly after arriving back in Boca Raton, head coach Carl Pelini did a series of speeches to the Greek organizations on campus.
In the athletic department, we always talk about the importance of getting the students involved in our events. I can think of no better way of encouraging the students to come out, than having the head football coach, fresh off of his biggest win come to them to address them personally.
Pat Chun, our Director of Athletics, can often be heard talking about changing the culture of the athletic department. That kind of change often begins with the youngest members of a population, and on a college campus that means the students. The athletic department is making a concerted effort to get more students to attend games and that will be evident to all the students who attend Saturday's game.
There is no better time to be an FAU student.
