The Northern Michigan University Alumni Association has chosen Saturday, March 5, as “Wildcat Night Across the Country.” Alumni groups will meet at various U.S. locations to cheer on the Wildcat hockey team as it competes at home against rival Michigan Tech at 7 p.m. EST.
A pre-game party co-hosted by the alumni associations of both universities will be held from 5-7 p.m. in Vandament Arena. Tickets will cost $10 and cover food, spirit wear and prizes. A cash bar will be available.
For alumni elsewhere, the game will be streamed live in high definition from NMU’s Berry Events Center via portal.stretchinternet.com/nmuhockey. The Wildcat sports radio station broadcast of the game will be streamed at www.1003ThePoint.com.
