National Watch Party Day

National Watch Party Day

On Thursday, Nov. 2, as the Huskies take on rival Toledo, our watch party venues are celebrating NIU National Watch Party Day and are offering giveaways, prizes and free drinks or appetizers for showing your #HuskiePride in NIU gear on that day. You won’t want to miss this opportunity to celebrate being a Huskie with fellow alumni as you cheer on the football team!

Our watch parties make it fun and convenient to cheer on the Huskies from afar! Check out our official 2017 Huskie hangout locations below to catch a game.
