University of Mississippi officials are considering whether to start charging fees next year for people or groups to reserve spots on campus for football tailgating parties.
Andy Mullins, executive assistant to the chancellor, says that under a current policy, the Grove is supposed to open at 6 p.m. Fridays so people can start setting up. But he says some have been arriving as early as 7 a.m. Fridays, and that's interrupting the academic day.
Mullins told the Northeast Mississippi Daily Journal that there have been arguments over spaces, and companies that set up tents have been aggressive.
Mullins says the university's Gameday Committee will study the proposal and decide whether to recommend it to the Executive Council.
