Who We Are

"We are the students of Northwestern University. We are artistic and analytical. Technical and musical. Nerdy and athletic. At Northwestern athletic events, our diverse student body comes together in a sea of Purple Pride. NU Wildside, the official student section of Northwestern Athletics, seeks to unify the student body, creating a home-field advantage for our varsity athletic teams through impassioned loyalty and support. Wildside seeks to facilitate an exciting, memorable gameday experience for Northwestern students, channeling our diversity and spirit into one gathering and creating an atmosphere of camaraderie, passion, and celebration around our Wildcats. On game day and every day, Wildside is the lifeblood of our University. We are one purple, one pride, one Wildside." - Marco Contreras, Class of '23
