A new school year has arrived, and with it comes the excitement and pageantry of college football at our own Huskie Stadium. The Department of Intercollegiate Athletics very much appreciates the hard work and dedication of NIU faculty and staff and their many contributions to the advancement of the university. Much of the classroom success of Huskie student-athletes is the result of the support they receive from NIU professors, administrators and staff throughout our campus.

Thursday’s Huskie Football season opener will mark the debut of “The Yard,” which will be the official pregame tailgate location of NIU Athletics. The Yard will feature tents dedicated to university initiatives, student-athlete alumni, a family-friendly kids zone, live music and much more.

As a sign of appreciation for all that NIU faculty and staff do for the university, Huskie Athletics is offering a $95 discounted football season ticket for faculty and staff. 2014 Huskie Football season tickets are available through the Athletics Ticket Office and can be ordered by calling (815) 753-PACK (7225). Faculty and staff can also complete and return a season ticket payroll deduction form to the Athletics Ticket Office, P.O. Box 906, DeKalb, IL, 60115.
