Millennials have taken over the athletic department at Georgetown, and judging from a promotion they’re running next month, they are sick and tired of baby boomers complaining about them.

The GU athletic department is running a promotion called #MillennialDay at the men’s soccer game against UCLA on September 4. There will be a dabbing safe space, cord-cutting stations, pregame selfies with Jack the Bulldog, a verbal communication-free zone where fans are only allowed to text each other, and, of course, the first 500 fans will get participation trophies just for showing up.

Here’s an excerpt from the official press release:

“At #MillennialDay, you can expect only the most #awesome giveaways (because millennials expect everything to be free) and the most hella cool activities. So that everyone feels welcome at Shaw Field, a #dabbing safe space will be roped off, as well as a halftime naptime break if you ~can’t even~ stay awake for the whole game.

“If you’re #thirsty, enter the raffle for a DC area juice gift card. As long as you’re like, basically on time for the game, you will be greeted with not only words of praise but also a PARTICIPATION TROPHY because all #millennials are #special. And for all your social media needs, our mascot, Jack the Bulldog, will be available to take some #Kardashianworthy pregame selfies that you can take and post for either during the game or for a hype #tbt.”

“Millennial Day” is the brainchild of Georgetown Athletics marketing director Chris Grosse, creator of such promotions as “Hail to the Kale Night” (everybody gets free kale), “Dad Bod Day” (dad bods get in free) and Georgetown’s much publicized “Proposal Package” (couples who get engaged get t-shirts and engagement photos).

Somebody give this guy a raise.
