NIU students show support for UCA

A group of 10 students from Northern Illinois University will drive 11 hours from DeKalb, Ill. to show their support for UCA in the wake of the Oct. 26 shooting incident.

The students are part of an organization called Huskies United, which held a candlelight vigil for UCA on Oct. 28. NIU experienced a similarly tragic incident on Feb. 14, when a gunman killed six people and wounded 18 on its campus.

The NIU representatives will attend UCA’s football game on Saturday and present a banner expressing support from the NIU student body.
