New tradition starts here

FORMER STUDENT ATHLETES, cheerleaders, team managers and trainers are invited to become founding members of the new V Club and reconnect with the University and former teammates. 

“The V Club is a continuation of the unique tradition experienced by every student athlete who passed through the Park Blocks,” says Tygue Howland ’10, a former Viking quarterback. Howland helped start the V Club this past year as an intern in the Athletics Department.

Cost to join the V Club is $20 a year; however, gifts to support student athletic scholarships and specific sports programs are encouraged. Membership benefits include specific game tickets, party invitations, and a newsletter. Former student athletes who are currently members of a sport-specific support club will receive automatic membership in the V Club.

To sign up, look for the V Club link at or call Scott Boyd at 503-725-9744.
