Who wants a second helping?

The Second Annual NIU Homecoming Brunch, hosted by the NIU Alumni Association and NIU Foundation, will take place from 9:30-11:30 a.m. on Saturday. Oct. 8 in front of NIU's historic and picturesque Altgeld Hall on College Avenue.

The brunch will take place outdoors under a tent, so please dress accordingly. There will be plenty of opportunities to take pictures with our favorite mascot, Mission II, as well!

Each registration includes a full buffet of scrambled eggs, hashbrown casserole, bacon, fresh fruit, biscuits and gravy, assorted pastries, coffee and juice. With their tickets, guests who are over 21 years old will receive one ticket for a Dawgma beer from Pollyanna Brewing & Distilling or a bloody mary featuring Blue Ice Handcrafted Vodka with their tickets. Additional bar beverage tickets will be available for purchase for $5.

Parking is available in the lot on the north side of the lagoon, as well as in the art building parking lot, which are both located off of College Ave.

Golf carts will be running throughout the brunch to bring guests to Mission's Grove
