Sophomore Angelica Rodriguez of Huntley, majoring in education science practices with the color guard during band camp. The color guard was the reason Rodriguez chose to attend NIU. And in the future she wants to make sure wherever her teaching career takes her, she's able to continue with color guard as a coach. Color guard will always be her passion.
