TUSKEGEE, Ala. (August 28, 2013) — The Department of Athletics at Tuskegee University has launched a new website with Golden Tigers fans in mind. GoldenTigerSports.com is a multi-feature site that sets a lot of historical precedents at a school that is already rich in history. With the impending arrival of the upcoming football season, GoldenTigerSports.com will provide fans, media and university administrators with the following ways to keep tabs on their favorite athletic teams at Tuskegee University:
  • Social Networking – Athletics now has its first official social networking pages with Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, YouTube and Google+ available in one convenient place in the upper right hand corner of the homepage. The Google+ page is a first at Tuskegee University and will be able to give fans more access than typical social networking pages, with live hangouts, photo galleries and more.
  • Online Photo Galleries – With the photo gallery feature, fans and followers of TU Athletics will be able to stay in the know, with action shots both on and off of the areas of play.
