Northwestern does things a bit differently than the rest of the Big Ten.
For instance, the front page of its athletic department’s website is promoting the following event:
EVANSTON, Ill. – For the fourth season, Northwestern Athletics is continuing its series of Networking Night events in conjunction with men’s basketball home games and the Northwestern Alumni Association. The first event of 2012 is scheduled for Feb. 9 as part of the Northwestern vs. Iowa men’s basketball game.
This Wildfire Restaurant Networking Night is focused on Journalism and Media and will begin at 6 p.m. with tip-off of the game scheduled for 8 p.m. We are pleased to welcome ESPN.com Big Ten blogger Adam Rittenberg (J03), who will offer insight into the ways that journalism and media are changing.
Interesting enough, and Rittenberg does a good job at ESPN blogging about the Big Ten.
If that event isn’t enough for you, however, there’s another less than two weeks later featuring guest speaker Saq Nadeem.
Who, you ask, is Saq Nadeem? Well …
Saq Nadeem (Kellogg 05), the mind behind Paradise for Paws – a premium pet resort located near airports catering to traveling business people with pets.
Again, this is all on the front page of Northwestern’s athletic department’s website right now.
