REVEALED PREFERENCES.

The general population of Northern Illinois University students have a food pantry.

Student athletes, whether on scholarship or as walk-ons, have nutrition coaches.
The latest project includes multiple enhancements to the current weight room along with the construction of the Nutrition Center, which will serve all 400 Huskie student-athletes. The changes will include renovation and adjustments within the existing space on the east end of the Yordon Center and Barsema Hall of Champions. Jay Anderson, President of Northwestern Medicine Kishwaukee Hospital, said the gift is the latest example of the company's commitment to DeKalb and to its ongoing partnership with Northern Illinois University.

"We are excited to partner with NIU, and provide their student-athletes with access to world-class care," said Jay Anderson, president of Northwestern Medicine Kishwaukee Hospital. "We are looking forward to building a premiere comprehensive athletic health and wellness program with the enhancement of the performance center and opening of the Nutrition Center."

Support for the project includes both nutritional products for the student-athletes, and staffing of the Nutrition Center, both of which are critical elements to the development of current and future Huskies, according to NIU Director of Sports Performance Brad Ohrt.
I fully expect the university's Morale Conditioners to note that it's all donated money.

With all the virtue-signalling talk about access and student moms and veterans and illegal aliens, will there be a campaign to provide to the development of current and future Huskies who aren't passing, shooting, jumping, or batting their way through college?
