The NIU men's basketball team was up bright and early this past Saturday morning, volunteering its time at the annual Corn Fest 10K Race. The team handed out water and offered encouragement to the runners competing in the race. The Corn Fest Race is one of many community service projects the Huskies have taken part in.

The size of the crowd at football practice today increased as a number of students, and their families, participating in move-in day at NIU stopped by to get a glimpse of the 2011 Huskie football team. The Huskies also had another visitor whose face is more familiar around the NIU Convocation Center than on the turf at Huskie Stadium as men's basketball head coach Mark Montgomery stopped by. Montgomery and NIU football coach Dave Doeren chatted for a few minutes during practice, no doubt comparing notes about their transitions as first-year head coaches at NIU.
