NIU Athletics announces dates for this year’s Coffee With Carlsen speaking series to be held at Lincoln Inn in Downtown DeKalb. Coffee With Carlsen will feature women’s basketball coach Lisa Carlsen, who was hired to be the Huskies 10th women’s basketball coach June 30, after eight successful seasons at Lewis.
The next event will begin at 7:30 a.m. this Wednesday, January 19th in the banquet room at Lincoln Inn (240 E Lincoln Hwy, DeKalb, IL 60115), with fans being able to mingle with Coach Carlsen, basketball staff members, as well as the special guest or guests of the event. All members of the community are invited.
“When I first heard about the breakfast series, I knew this was a great chance for the program to reach out and connect with the fans and our community,” said Carlsen. “This is an opportunity for our staff and myself to get to know some of our fans on a more personal level and this platform gives them a chance to gain some insight on our team, as well as the other programs and great coaches we have at NIU.”
Coffee With Carlsen is a first come, first serve event at the Lincoln Inn, held in the back room banquet area of the restaurant. Fans will be served breakfast and a beverage for just $10.
