Bigger Band at Poinsettia Bowl

December 19th, 2013

The NIU Alumni Association and NIU Foundation want the Huskies to be heard at the San Diego Credit Union Poinsettia Bowl.

So they are providing support to send 20 more Huskie Marching Band members to the bowl, increasing the band’s attendance from 70 to an impressive 90 of the 155 total members.

To help fill the stands, the two organizations will also sponsor bowl trips for 10 of NIU’s best and brightest students.

“The students we work with through our engaged learning programs are exactly the kind of students we want representing Northern,” said Julia Spears, NIU’s associate vice provost of engaged learning.
