Hammond, Ind. & Westville, Ind. – As a new business that opened a few months ago in Hammond, Purdue University Northwest Athletics is proud to announce Jimmy John’s as a new Corporate Champion sponsor for the 2017-18 school year.
When Calumet College of St. Joseph's head women's basketball coach Steve Helm heard about the devastation that was occurring in Houston, he knew that he had to help in any way that he could. "My heart and prayers went out to those that had lost their loved ones and had their homes and belongs destroyed. I started to think right away about how I could help."
This has been coming since last winter, but I wanted to post this for all my friends, family, and supporters who follow me on social media. I’ve decided that after five years, I’m stepping away from playing professional basketball.
Looking to continue to build on its presence within the local community, Purdue University Northwest Athletics and Northwestern Mutual of Crown Point recently announced an agreement on a corporate partnership for the 2017-18 season.
Purdue Northwest Brings Community and Athletes Together at Homecoming Tailgate and Fall Sports Festival
Purdue Northwest constantly seeks to outdo itself, in academics, athletics, and community building. On Saturday, they did just that with their second annual Fall Sports Festival and Homecoming Tailgate at Dowling Park in Hammond, which brought the community together for a showcase of PNW’s best and brightest.
With sales set to start this week at Saturday’s Fall Sports Festival at Dowling Park as well as online via the athletics website, the Purdue University Northwest Athletics Department plans to introduce All-Sport Packages to its regular ticket line-up for the 2017-18 school year. The packages allow two Pride fans to attend all PNW Athletics home events through May 2018 with a single, low-cost purchase. The cost for a general Pride All-Sports Package, which includes two adult all-sport passes, is $50. For faculty and staff of Purdue Northwest, the Pride All-Sports Package is available for only $40. There is also a version of the Pride All-Sports Package for our younger fans allowing two children between the ages of 4-17 for the cost of $30.
From the outside, the hype over region athletics may not seem that exciting, but for the athletes training each day, it’s a huge part of their high school or college careers. While that may not appeal to everyone, it’s exactly what Jackson Long, a senior at Lake Central High School, loves about the area.
