Football Road Watch Party

Watch Party

Wednesday, November 11th, 6:30 p.m.

Supportive Professional Staff Council is hosting a Road Watch Party on November 11. We will be meeting at Fatty’s Pub and Grille for socializing as we support our football team as they take on the University of Buffalo on the road. Be sure to bring your Huskie spirit...and be ready to relax!

Kick off is at 7:00pm, but we will start gathering at 6:30pm.

All NIU staff members are welcome to attend.

There will also be door prizes courtesy of the NIU Women’s Basketball Team, the NIU Men’s Golf Team, and MORE!

To help us determine space so we can reserve enough tables, we are asking that individuals please RSVP.

Feeling Winter Gloom?

Tuesday, December 1st AND Wednesday, December 2nd
Montgomery Hall 215A

Did you know that you can visit the Biological Sciences greenhouse pretty much anytime the facility is open? Craig Schultz, the Greenhouse Director, invites SPS to take a stroll through the greenhouses and check out the wide variety of plants and the cozy temperatures. Visitors are free to come and go during these open house-style events. You will also have the opportunity to buy houseplants that will be for sale to support the greenhouse and all of the other programs that are supported by the Biological Sciences greenhouse.

SPS Holiday Social

Monday, December 14th 3-4:30p
NIU Anthropology Museum

The staff of the NIU Anthropology Museum are inviting SPS to celebrate winter and the holiday season in Cole Hall. There will be activities for those interested in creating a communal rag rug, coloring Hmong art pages, or possibly creating storage mounts for the museum itself. As for the food, watch for details on the potluck and the taste competition that we will be holding. This will be a great way to wrap up the semester!
