Show Your Huskie Pride on Fridays

September 28th, 2017

Huskies on and off campus will be rewarded for displaying their pride on Red and Black Fridays this year, as campus officials plan to give everyone another reason to celebrate the most popular day of the week.

Kelly Wesener-Michael, associate vice president of student affairs, is part of the committee that helped organize the Red and Black Fridays effort.

“There’s really no better place to be and to work on Fridays than a college campus, and we’re excited to have an official excuse to spread Huskie spirit through Red and Black Fridays,” she said.

The #HuskiePride campaign can be followed on social media, where every NIU Huskie, no matter where they are in the world, is encouraged to wear red and black on Fridays to show school spirit.

How to Participate on Social Media

Fans can tag photos showing off their school spirit on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram with #HuskiePride and #CollegeColors for a chance to be featured on NIU’s social media accounts. Here are alumni accounts to tag and follow:

NIUalumni on Facebook
niu_alumni on Twitter
niu_alumni on Instagram

Participants can also show their #HuskiePride on Facebook by adding an NIU frame to their profile picture. To do this on your Facebook page, select “update profile photo,” add frame, search for NIU, select the frame you like and then select “use as profile picture.”

If you’re not on Facebook, you can still proclaim your love of NIU on other social media accounts with an NIU profile photo.
