Huskie spirit will fill campus and DeKalb next week as NIU celebrates Homecoming.
The fun begins at 9 a.m. Sunday, Oct. 18, with “Paint the Town” in downtown DeKalb and continues through 3 a.m. Sunday, Oct. 25, at the NPHC Dance, held in the Campus Recreation Center.
Between those events will come the Kick Off Rally in the MLK Commons, the Yell Like Hell competition in the NIU Convocation Center, the nighttime “Northern Lights” parade, the Homecoming 5K run/walk and, of course, the election of the Homecoming Court royalty and Saturday afternoon’s football game versus Eastern Michigan.
