On the Record @ Northwestern, February 21, 2014

February 21, 2014

School from Weatherford coming to town Thursday

Northwestern Rangers, past and present, are gearing up for the doubleheader basketball game with rival Southwestern Thursday, Feb. 27, in Percefull Fieldhouse. The women tip at 5:30 p.m. with the men to follow at 7:30 p.m.

Spirit Week events gave you the practice you'd need to get ready for Rivalry Week. The University provided 700 of you with free Blackout shirts. This would be an ideal time to have another "Blackout" event. If you didn't get a shirt, just come to the game dressed in black. Paint your faces, bring your signs, get loud (but respectful and no artificial noisemakers), and make Percefull Fieldhouse rock with noise!

The Ranger Band also will have a few special guests in attendance at this game as alumni band members and friends will help provide an enthusiastic atmosphere suited for Rivalry Week.

Pioneer Telephone Cooperative, Inc., is having a special Corporate Night Event during this game as well. Fans can register to win a chance to shoot a $10,000 half-court shot. The first 600 guests will receive a free gift, and Ranger cheerleaders will be throwing out free T-shirts.

One lucky Twitter follower of @pioneertelecoop in attendance will receive $100 for following them and using a hashtag that will be announced at the game. Fans must be in attendance to win and must be following @pioneertelecoop.

Remember this feeling from the victory in Weatherford? Let's bring the excitement to Percefull Fieldhouse Thursday night!


Softball, baseball doing well

And how about our Ranger Softball and Baseball teams?! Try to get out to the ballpark this season to cheer them on!

Athletics Schedules can be found at www.riderangersride.com


Deadline for Art Show entries extended until Feb. 28

Martin Library before March 5. Please try to get entry forms in by the original entry date of Feb. 26 if possible.

It's that time of year again when members of the University Relations Office need to update photos from around campus, in our classrooms and of our students enjoying campus activities.

Students: We'd love to use the photos you've taken with your phone or with your cameras while taking part in or watching the numerous on campus activities.
