Super Bowl Sunday is always a very important day in America, but it was even more important in Minnesota this year. The Super Bowl took place Feb. 4 in Minneapolis at US Bank Stadium. Nearly 1 million people attended the 10 days of Super Bowl events. About a quarter of the people who attended came from out of town and from around 100 different countries. When there are this many people who are going to be attending an event there needs to be some help. For the big game in Minneapolis, thousands of people signed up to be volunteers. Countless people applied and many were turned down. For many students at the University of Northwestern St. Paul, this wasn’t the case. Around 60 students had the opportunity to volunteer for various events including Super Bowl live, skyway host, ticket takers and security. Many of these students were even able to attend some of the game.
