Huskies Game Day Challenge

Huskie Stadium, SW corner 1245 Stadium Dr S

At the Huskies vs. Toledo game on 11/14, NIU will also be competing in EPA's "Game Day Challenge". Colleges across the nation are competing to see who can recycle the most and waste the least at their home football games. Help lead NIU to the top by volunteering to collect recycling during the game. Remember to put all recycling in the blue bins or WM recycling bins with yellow lids. Every little bit helps. If you or your organization is interested in volunteering from 5-8pm or 8-10pm, or if you would like to help promote the event, please contact Melissa Burlingame at

The Game Day Challenge was great! There were a lot of volunteers, from student groups like CPW, Environmental Studies Club, and Green Paws, to fraternities and sororities like Sigma Alpha Sigma. The football fans were enthusiastic about the challenged and most were happy to learn about recycling facts.
