The weekend will bring two opportunities for free food, not to mention plenty of fun and live music.
Fridayâ€™s “We Are Huskies” Tailgate, scheduled from noon to 2 p.m. on the west lawn outside Huskie Stadium, offers a chance to relax with new friends and members of the university community while enjoying a great tailgate-style lunch.
The second opportunity comes from 5 to 7 p.m. Sunday, Aug. 25, at the Presidentâ€™s Welcome Back Picnic. New NIU President Doug Baker invites the university community to join him for more free food, live music and outdoor activities to celebrate the start of the new academic year.
The event will take place on the lawn north of the Visual Arts Building across from Gilbert Hall.
