Auburn University’s second annual Bodda Getta Bash to be held Oct. 11

AUBURN UNIVERSITY- Auburn University will hold the second annual Bodda Getta Bash on Friday, Oct. 11, beginning at 4 p.m. with the homecoming parade followed by a pep rally at 6:30 p.m. A concert featuring Gloriana and Eric Hutchinson will begin shortly after the pep rally.

“UPC and SGA are both incredibly excited and believe Auburn fans of all ages will have a blast at the event. Fans can expect to see an exhilarating pep rally followed by a phenomenal concert to spark the energy and spirit for the homecoming weekend,” said Shannon Lalley, assistant director of major entertainment for the University Program Council.

The free, public event is organized by Auburn University’s Student Government Association and University Program Council. The event is a combination of the homecoming parade, SGA’s traditional pep rally and UPC’s fall concert.

“SGA is always looking for opportunities to collaborate with other student groups in serving the Auburn community. [SGA] was looking to sponsor a major event which would celebrate the spirit of Homecoming with the Auburn community,” said Brad Smith, advisor for the Student Government Association. “We were looking to take homecoming festivities to the next level this year and to re-establish an emphasis on the spirit of homecoming week. Therefore, we decided to come together with UPC to co-host the second annual Bodda Getta Bash.”

Bodda Getta Bash will include performances by the Auburn University marching band, Auburn University cheerleaders, Tiger Paws, AU Rhythm, Aubie and a guest speaker from the Auburn University Athletics Department.

“I personally decided to get involved with UPC because I really enjoy planning events for Auburn students, and Bodda Getta Bash combines the two things I love most: the spirit of the Auburn family and great music,” said Lalley.
