What is a “RED RIOT”?

“Red Riot” is the student organization of athletic supporters from Northern Illinois University who come together in force (like a “riot”, albeit in a fun way!), to support NIU and the NIU athletes.  The group are known for “over the top” ways of showing their support from painted faces, crazy-wild costumes, and just about anything else fun that will demonstrate school spirit. Red Riot will always be there to demonstrate NIU student support for all our athletes in a variety of sports.

Student input needed to shape future of NIU campus

Bold Futures banner: College of Engineering and Engineering TechnologyAs part of Northern Illinois University’s Campus RE: ENVISIONED study aimed at revitalizing the central core campus in conjunction with the university’s Bold Futures initiative, teams of design firms from across the nation will be envisioning potential future state scenarios for the Holmes Student Center and Neptune Residential Complex, as well as the surrounding urban framework, and student input is needed to inform the process.

In order to best address campus needs in the future, student input is is critically important to inform designers about how the campus is currently being used. NIU students are invited to participate in the MyCampus survey, which contains an interactive, map-based questionnaire that asks participants to drop pins and trace lines describing their NIU experience and how  it could be improved.

The design teams will be making initial presentations at the December 7 Student Association Senate meeting, and students will have an opportunity to get involved during the planning process that follows in the spring semester.

Student input will help the design team understand how the NIU community interacts with its campus and the city of DeKalb. The data collected will ultimately inform planning and design decisions affecting the future of NIU’s campus.

Students who participate in the MyCampus survey are eligible to win one of several prizes, including Huskie Athletics apparel, gift cards and a grand prize of a free iPad Mini.  An NIU email address is required to for students to be eligible for prizes.

Don’t pass up this opportunity to have a voice in revitalizing a very important part of the NIU campus.  Students can access the MyCampus survey at go.niu.edu/mycampus . The survey developers recommend setting aside 15 minutes to complete the survey.
