Bringing Back Orange Tide
For students who have arrived at the University of Jamestown post-Covid, this may be the first time you hear about Orange Tide. What exactly is Orange Tide? Orange Tide is a student-run organization that promotes the athletic events on campus and helps organize events within the event such as halftime events and games.
Women’s softball coach, Kevin Gall, had the vision to bring this organization back to life. “Orange Tide is about trying to get as many people to our events as possible. During Covid, we didn’t feel like it was worth the effort to try and get people to attend events when we were telling them to social distance at the same time.” But with restrictions lifted, Gall decided it was time to re-establish Orange Tide and get students involved again.
Orange Tide is looking for students who are outgoing and not afraid to get up in front of people and show their Jimmie Pride. It doesn’t matter if they are an athlete or not. Orange Tide’s current featured event is “CHASE THE ACE”. It only takes $1 to enter for a chance to win the jackpot! This game will be found at many of UJ’s sporting events throughout the year. Keep an eye out for the big black box!
If you are a sports enthusiast or you are just looking to be more involved in athletics on campus, join the Orange Tide! Contact Kevin Gall at firstname.lastname@example.org or any member of the Orange Tide (Paige Erhardt, Briana Perry, Sadie Meissner, Damian Otero, Jermaine Collier, Brady Higgs, and Carlos Julian) to find out how you can get involved.
