Join the Wildcat spirit in our first-ever "Taste of NU!" This event will showcase a variety of food that not only highlights NU Cuisine, but also the Chicago-community. Food stations will be placed throughout Norris University Center while we also celebrate Northwestern spirit with a "photo booth," music, spirit items, games, and television viewing of the football game for those who do not have tickets to the game.

The Game Day Shuttle will be running from campus to Ryan Field. For those attending the football game, you will be able to hop on the shuttle at either the stop located at Foster and Sheridan or the stop located at Emerson and Sheridan; both stops are only a short walk from Norris!

Tickets must be purchased online through the Norris Box Office by 12 p.m. CST (noon) on Thursday, October 18. Tickets are $8 for family members and NU students; children under 6 years of age do not require a ticket.
