This Sunday, Feb. 3, Northwestern will host its annual Super Bowl Party on campus. The event will take place from 5 p.m. through the end of the game. This year, the event will be held in a new location: the Hub. Plans are to decorate the Hub specially for the Super Bowl Party.
Creative Dining and Student Activities are working together to facilitate this event. The move to the Hub is in response to student feedback from previous years. Creative Dining
hopes to better facilitate the number of people and food preparation by hosting the Super Bowl Party in the Hub.
Students will gather to watch the game and dig into traditional tailgate foods. On the menu: a variety of wings, a nacho bar, soft pretzels with dipping sauces and a decorate-your-own-cookie station. There will also be popcorn and other snacks. Food will be served at 5 p.m. and can be paid for with a meal exchange.
Anna Boyles, the student organizer for this event, is excited about the activities that will take place throughout the evening.
“We will have a prop pool contest where students can submit their guesses for what will happen throughout the game,” Boyles said.
Students are able to make guesses about the score of the game and there will be a prize at the end of the night.
Forms for this can be found in the Hub and should be turned in before the event starts.
Throughout the evening there will also be a trivia game for all students to participate in.
“We will have prizes for the prop pool contest and trivia contest,” Boyles says. “We will be giving away flex dollars and movie passes.”
Many students have closely followed this year’s football season and are waiting with great anticipation for the championship game.
The New England Patriots will return to the Super Bowl this year for the eleventh time to face off against the new Los Angeles-based Rams who won by what is considered by many a controversial call. It is sure to be a great game as both teams go in with outstanding win records on the year.
Every year, the Super Bowl Party draws a crowd of people. Some are there for the food, others are there for the games and prizes and others for the football. No matter what draws you, there is sure to be something for you.
Bring your roommate, your wingmates, and your friends for a great time of football and fellowship this Sunday night!
