Team NIU

Each fall at NIU, the campus gears up for Opening Day. During Opening Day, students, student organizations, faculty members, staff, and community volunteers demonstrate their Huskie Pride by welcoming NIU students to the residence halls, their home-away-from-home.

With over 3,000 students moving into the residence halls on Opening Day, Team NIU plays a critical role in making the day a success. The volunteers that comprise Team NIU offer their time and team spirit to give new Huskies and their families the best possible first impression of what makes NIU special.

Team NIU consists of individuals as well as groups.  If you are interested in joining Team NIU for fall 2014, please check this site for registration information.  All student volunteers and groups/organizations must register to be allowed at move in locations on Opening Day.  Only those group/organization members wearing the official Team NIU t-shirt will be allowed to assist students with move in.
