Hawk's Nest Seating Signups are Sept. 22 at Fieldhouse

IOWA CITY, Iowa -- The University of Iowa Alumni Association will host the first annual Hawk's Nest Seating Signups Saturday, Sept. 22, beginning at 8 a.m. until noon at the North Gym of the UI Fieldhouse.

In this kickoff event, members of the 2001-02 Hawk's Nest can sign up to be seated with their friends at home basketball games. Members of the UI basketball team, coaching staff and cheerleaders will be on hand to drum up some early excitement for the upcoming season.

With its numbers nearing 2,000 student fans, the Hawk's Nest will be the largest organized student spirit section in the Big 10 and possibly the country, according Emily Syfert, the assistant marketing director at the UI Alumni Association

Organized by the UI Alumni Association, the Hawk's Nest is a student cheer section that roots for the Hawkeyes at home games in Carver Hawkeye Arena. Students pay a $20 Hawk's Nest membership fee in addition to their season tickets.

For more information, contact Syfert at (319) 335-3294 or see the Hawk's Nest web page for more details: http://www.iowalum.com/hawksnest/.
