Show your #HuskiePride
Celebrate 125 Years
The new year brought more than a new decade to Northern Illinois University — we’re observing 125 years in 2020! From our founding mission in 1895 of producing more college-educated teachers to our reputation today as a world-class research institution, NIU’s vision of inspiring the future has stayed the same.
Red and Black Fridays
Everyone's favorite day of the week gets another reason to be awesome with Red and Black Fridays observed on campus and by NIU Huskies around the world. Participants are asked to wear NIU clothing and gear, and to share their pride on Instagram, Twitter and Facebook with #HuskiePride for a chance to be featured on NIU's homepage and NIU official social media accounts.
Game Day Spirit
Wear your red and black to cheer on the Huskies!
