What advice do you have for future students? Try new things and go beyond your old limits.  There's something for everyone at NIU, even if you don't know what that thing is yet.

What are 3 things you love about NIU? I love the friendly, open atmosphere; the enthusiasm and availability of the professors; and the social and cultural offerings on campus.

What is your favorite place on campus? The tunnel between Neptune North and Neptune Central: I just loved that I could walk through a tunnel to get to breakfast every day, especially in the winter!
