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.
