Save the date! Fall Kick-Off on Aug. 23

July 8, 2019

NIU is ready to roll out the red and black carpet for incoming Huskies during the annual Fall Kick-Off set for 5 p.m. Friday, Aug. 23.

NIU’s marching band leads the procession to Huskie Stadium for the annual Huskie Fall Kick-off.

NIU faculty, staff and student volunteers are needed to help welcome new students and their families as we celebrate NIU’s traditions and show our Huskie pride! Kicking off at 5 p.m. from Neptune Central, NIU’s marching band will lead the procession that culminates at Huskie Stadium where students will form a giant “NIU” on the field for a photo.

Volunteers are needed from 3:45-6:15 p.m. on Aug. 23 to welcome and direct new students and their families, hand out T-shirts and help new students form the “NIU” on the turf. A brief volunteer training will take place on Aug. 22.

Watch for formal volunteer sign-up coming soon. For questions about this event, please contact James Huizenga at [email protected].
