This year’s schedule includes a donut giveaway, a roller-skating event, a T-shirt giveaway and food trucks.

“The goal of Northwest Week is to bring students and faculty together to celebrate the community through a variety of fun events,” Maggie Wiedrich, SAC’s director of traditions and a freshman business administration major from Gretna, Nebraska, said. “Students should participate in the events not only for a chance to win exciting prizes but to make memories with friends and build new connections.”

Attendees will be entered into raffles for chances to win prizes sponsored by SAC. A $100 Visa gift card and a $50 Walmart gift card will be raffled daily. Additionally, attendees can win prizes, such as an iPad, Beats headphones, an air fryer, and a set of pots and pans.
