The Student Activities and Athletic departments sponsored the Tiger Tailgate Party at ChattState on Friday, Nov. 13th. The event was designed to build team spirit and strengthen support of the talented athletes that make up ChattState’s basketball team. It was also a lot of fun! Enjoy the highlights here:

I am grateful to Chattanooga State because the classes I took and time I spent as manager of the women’s basketball team prepared me to continue my education and athletic endeavors (specifically as a student athletic trainer and manager) at UTC and a summer job at Engel Stadium as the clubhouse attendant for the visiting baseball team. As a shy person who loves sports but is not a good athlete, my time as manager of the team gave me the confidence to pursue my degree while being involved in college athletics.
BASF recently donated $2,000 to support the men’s and women’s basketball teams at Chattanooga State Community College.
“BASF is proud to support Chattanooga State for the great chemistry they create between the school and the community,“ said Robert Gagliano, BASF Chattanooga Site Manager. “Our partnership is rooted in a mutual desire to encourage the continual development of student athletes’ passion, talent and drive, which will mobilize students both on the court and in their future careers.”
We are honored that BASF has been a loyal and generous athletics contributor to the Chattanooga State Foundation since 2009. Read more here.
Athletics Director Kim Smith recently announced the EPB Partnership during an executive staff meeting on campus along with Ms. Niki Phillips from EPB and Chattanooga State basketball players.
“We are grateful for EPB’s generous partnership,” said Smith. “The students are exemplifying leadership, spirit, pride and loyalty like never before, and it is an honor to have EPB recognize our athletes as they strive to make better lives for themselves in the classroom, during competition and in the community.”
