One of the greatest parts about the University of Mississippi during football season is the Grove. In the Grove, there are a variety of tents to visit and cuisines to devour. Rain or shine, the experience is sure to be enjoyable and memorable. Garrett Ochoa, a senior here at Ole Miss, makes sure people have an incredible Grove experience.
Garrett’s family, along with a few other families, run a tent known as the “zebra tent.” This tent stands out from the rest, not only because it’s different than all of the red and blue tents; it’s also well known because of the great hospitality and fun environment.
It is an easier location to find than most other tents, and it is larger than most as well. The tent requires a lot of work each game week to maintain its status in the Grove, and each week, the families live up to and go beyond expectations.
