This girl has gone viral with her intense shrieking during the Northwestern games. She is now not allowed to attend the games.
After receiving complaints from both fans in the arena and television and radio partners after Sunday’s game against Illinois, NU officials asked her to tone it down. Or more specifically, to turn it off.
Harriott is president of Northwestern Wildside, the official NU student section. She regularly meets with Heather Obering, the athletic department’s director of marketing. At the end of their last conversation, Obering brought up the shrieking.
Harriott said Obering put it like this: “How about we not do that anymore?”
“It caught me a little by surprise,” Harriott said, “because I’ve been doing it for the last 3½ years.”
