Over 40 students from the SGA and athletic program represented Indiana University Northwest this past Saturday in the 37th Annual Valparaiso Popcorn Festival. Rufus the RedHawk was a huge hit in the parade running throughout the streets giving out high-fives and taking pictures with fans! It was all smiles from our students after walking the parade route in front of the massive crowd.
Student-athletes from our men’s and women’s basketball teams had a positive presence just outside the Kids Poppin’ and Play Place (Sponsored by Indiana University Northwest) throughout the afternoon. Our students spent the day interacting with the crowds handing out RedHawk giveaways.
All of our students showed their RedHawk Pride and promoted our program in a positive way! This was the first of several events planned for this year where members of the SGA and RedHawk Athletics join together for a common goal.
Please join us on Wednesday October 14th at 6:30pm (Savannah Center Gymnasium) SGA and RedHawk Athletics will sponsor a canned food drive KanJam tournament! Please contact the Office of Athletics for more details about the event!
