NIU Supermileage
I know this board is focused mainly on NIU athletics but another NIU team had some continued success that I though some of you may appreciate. Engineers typically don't get much attention unless they have done something horribly wrong, so it's always good in my mind to draw attention to the positive when it exists. I was very active in these teams (different competitions) 20 years ago and it was the highlight of my college experience.

They have had previous success but won the Shell Eco Marathon last weekend. I assume that they will also be competing in the SAE Supermileage competition in June.

Another awesome moment for the program was getting featured on Shell's tv commercial with Jay Leno a couple years back which had over 600 National airings.

Please keep on posting about the super mileage team. This is awesome. This team helps give NIU a good academic image.

RE: NIU Supermileage
We should do more of this type of publicity!
Congratulations to the team and their professors for a job well done
