JOIN THE HOWL!
For the 2020-21 basketball and volleyball seasons, Huskie Nation can join the Huskie Howl presented by FNBO. Fans can have a presence inside the NIU Convocation Center for $60 for the entire season. Put on your cardinal and black and purchase a Huskie Cutout so that you can still join us on gamedays. Net proceeds from all fan cutouts will benefit the Huskie Athletic Fund, which enhances the NIU student-athlete experience.
