The Huskies are Ready for an #NIUSocialSummer; Are You?
May 31, 2012
DeKALB, Ill. - What better to do during the summer months while waiting for your favorite Northern Illinois team to return to action than talk Huskie sports online with other NIU fans, and Northern Illinois coaches, win prizes and have fun while keeping up with your social media platforms? That's exactly what the Northern Illinois Huskies are doing this summer during a two-month social media initiative from June 4th through August 3rd.
Aptly named #NIUSocialSummer, the plan will feature different interactive components for each day (Monday-Friday) via Twitter (@NIUAthletics), Facebook (NIU Huskies), YouTube (NIUhuskiesdotcom), and NIUHuskies.com, as well as other special features. Don't miss out on following and participating!
The daily themes for the #NIUSocialSummer include:
#MicdUpMonday - Watch a "Five Questions With" interview with some of the most interesting people in Huskie Athletics. Meet one of Dwyane Wade's former teammates, some of the longest-tenured employees in athletics or one of our new head coaches.
#TriviaTuesday - @NIUAthletics Twitter followers and "NIU Huskies" Facebook friends will be asked to correctly answer a Huskie Trivia Question. Everyone with a correct answer will be entered into a drawing to win two tickets to any NIU football game this year. Better study up on your Huskie History!
#WebPollWednesday - Vote in our Facebook poll question and let your voice be heard on different Huskie Sports topics. The questions might be for fun but your feedback is important.
#ThrowbackThursday - We're scouring the archives for fun photos, old game programs and maybe even a newspaper article from the past. See them on Twitter and Facebook. You'll be surprised at how awesome some of our uniforms and logos were back in the day!
#FootballFriday - Catch up on the latest happenings with Huskie Football as NIU players, coaches and staff prepare for the 2012 season. Read or watch an interview, hear a quote, catch the links or find out a fun Huskie football fact. Dabble with the defending MAC Champs!
In addition to the daily schedule, watch for these regular features throughout the summer:
NIU Classic Match-Ups
Live Chats Galore
