Roaring Loud

Thanks to DJ Diesel (aka Shaq!) and all the members of the PNW Pride who joined us for an unforgettable dance party! Not even snow could stop the PNW community from getting together and Roaring Loud.

This fun, free celebration was the showcase student event for PNW’s yearlong “Roaring Ahead” celebration, commemorating our fifth year as PNW and the 75th year of both our Hammond and Westville campuses.

Thanks to 27 Entertainment, Canvas and Vibes for helping us to get the party started!
